Step 1

Gathering the supplies

Before beginning your jewellery making project, make sure you have all the required materials listed above. Arrange them neatly on your workspace to make the crafting process easier and more organized. The Magic Sorting Tray is perfect for holding the beads and the bead mat prevents the risk of beads rolling away from you if any are dropped.

Step 2

Stringing the beads

Thread on a Light Siam bead, followed by a White Opal Shimmer bead, and then another white seed bead onto the Headpin. Continue this pattern until you have beads on the pin with one red bead remaining.

Step 3

Shaping the candy cane

Using your fingers, gently bend the headpin into the shape of a candy cane leaving space for the final bead. It should look something like this:

Shaping the Candy Cane

Step 4

Securing the beads

Place a dot of Ninja SuperTite Fusion Tack into the exposed pin next to last white bead and thread on the final bead so that it sits on the glue. Leave this to fully dry and once you are sure the bead is secure, trim away the excess with the Side Cutters.

Step 5

Attach the ear wire

Once you have assembled the body of the earring, use the round nose and chain nose pliers to gently twist open the loop at the bottom of the Fishhook Ear wire, then slot the candy cane shape onto the opened loop and twist it closed again.

Tip: Be sure to always twist the loops open and closed and never pull them open as that will make the loop more likely to break in the future.

Step 6

Create a matching pair

Repeat all previous steps to create a matching pair of Swarovski Crystals Christmas Candy Cane Earrings. Ensure that the design symmetry and length of both earrings are in harmony.
