Emerald Crystal Earrings

I just love glittering crystals. Especially earrings from the sparkly, faceted beads. These large hoops will sway around the entire time you wear them, catching the light and making them shine!

Materials: small crystals or beads, oval shaped memory wire, bent nose pliers, round nose pliers, and wire cutters. 
Cut two pieces of memory wire, each a little bit more than a full oval. You will want one of the ends to be at the top of the oval, as this is where the earring will fasten. 
On one end of each piece, make a loop with your round nose pliers. 
Thread enough beads to fill a little more than half of the hoop. I used 31 crystals on each hoop. 
Now, cut the ends of the wire to be just a little longer than the loop. 
With your bent nose pliers, bend the memory wire end upwards, to create an angle. 
To fasten then, stick the bent end up and into the loop. 

Enjoy these sparkling swingy earrings!
Xoxo, Alyssa
