Lilac Crystal Earrings

These pretty earrings are a pale purple color, and will shine with the beautiful faceted crystals.
Materials: teardrop beads, 28 gauge wire, hoops, round nose pliers, and wire cutters. 
Cut a piece of wire and thread it through a bead. Give the wire a few twists to begin the wrap. 
With round nose pliers, form a loop. Wrap the ends of the wire around the loop, and down the bead. When you have a few wraps, tuck the ends under and trim close to the bead.
Repeat until you have ten beads. 
Thread five beads onto each hoop. 
Using pliers, bend the end of the wire of the hoop upwards, so it can be clasped. 
Repeat for the other earring, and you're done!
I just love the pale purple of these crystals! 
Xoxo, Alyssa
