Christmas Angel Earrings Jewellery Project Made With Crystal Beads
March 04, 20232 min read
At Christmas time sparkly jewellery with a festive them has become a modern classic just like wearing more sequins than at any other time of year and watching re-runs of the famous cookery programs that all teach you how to cook a turkey! But if you want something with more sentimental value, why not craft your own hand made earrings this year? Customise your yule accessories with high quality crystal beads and jewellery components that will guarantee you stand out against the typical jewellery worn at this time of year. When people ask where you bought your lovely earrings, you can proudly say that you made them yourself!
Follow the instructions below and make these Christmas Angel Earrings with Serinity crystal beads for the festive period. The silver-plated jewellery components have been chosen to compliment the sterling silver angel wings charm, however the 5500 drop bead can be changed to any colour of your choice as this bead represents the gown worn by the angel. We chose Crystal AB to create a glittering ethereal look, but you could experiment and create a whole choir of angels wearing different colours, you could adapt this idea into a birthstone earring concept if you so desired.
The full list of crystal beads, components and tools needed to complete this project can be found below. If you click on the product description (link), the respective product page will open, where each item can be viewed and added to cart:
Thread the crystal beads and charms onto the headpin starting with the Dropbead for the angels body, then the Wings, then the round beadfor the headand lastly the Rondellefor the glittering halo. Use Round Nose Pliers to then bend the headpin just above the Rondelle into a small loop and cut off the rest of the wire with Side Cutters.
Twist the loop open and thread on the Fishhook Ear wire, then twist the loop closed and repeat for the other earring.Be sure to always use a twisting motion when opening loops and not a pulling motion as that will warp and weaken the metal.
