Mother’s Day is right around the corner. Are you already prepared with a gift or fun experience to share? Or are you stumped and looking to be inspired?
Every year around Mother’s Day I feel stumped with how to celebrate my lovely mother. The woman who has loved me, nurtured me, raised me to be the woman I am today. You’d think it would get easier as I became an adult. Interestingly I find myself going back to my roots as a kid. I’ll make her something! Surely she will love something handmade.
Today I’m going to share with you a very simple tutorial on how to make these teardrop earrings.
What you will need:
- 2 black tear drop Swarovski Crystals
- 2 gold earring hooks
- Artistic Wire, gold 22 gauge
- Wire cutter
- Flat head plier
- Long nose plier
Start by taking the artistic wire and looping it through the crystal hole.
Then you can use the flat head plier to wrap the loose end of your wire tightly. Use the long nose plier to help create a loop at the top.
Then keep wrapping the longer wire down the crystal’s tip. You can keep wrapping as far down as you’d like.
This is where I stopped.
Now of course you have to repeat as above for the second crystal. Finally link in your earring hooks, and you’re done!
Hope you enjoyed this quick and easy tutorial! How will you be celebrating the lovely mother in your life? Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting the blog!
