What you need:
– 2 long eyepins
– 2 silver-coloured earring hooks
– 2 rhinestone charms (I got these off old earrings that I no longer wanted!)
– Small silver beads
I think really small ones make a nice dramatic contrast with the rhinestone charms but make sure the bores (holes) are large enough to thread through the eye pins!
Step 1: Thread them
Thread the silver beads through the eye pin till about 8mm is left then use your pliers to form a hoop at the end. Before you close the hoop, thread the rhinestone charm through it.
You will end up with the picture shown below.
Step 2: Hook it
Use your pliers to open the hook at the other end of the eye pin, thread the earring hook through, then close it.
Step 3: Repeat
Repeat steps 1 and 2 for the other side.
What do you think of these shoulder dusters? And even though they’re long, they don’t weigh too much as the silver beads used are really small. I have a horror of my earholes becoming slits!!
