Bring joy to your style with this pair of adorable earrings. Cynthia made these earrings with magical laser-etched dagger beads and Gardanne Beads enameled bead caps. The combination will put you in mind of magical forest sprites frolicking in the fields. Cynthia made these earrings during a Facebook Live Design Challenge. Watch her make these earrings and other designs here.
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately six inches long.
Add a Czech glass laser-etched transparent emerald with AB finish medium dagger wing design bead to the center of the wire. Add a TOHO 8/0 bead round in dichroic lined jonquil yellow rainbow to each side of the dagger. Then, add another dagger to each side. Add three seed beads to each side of the wire.
Bring both ends of the wire through a Czech glass 8mm metallic suede light green round bead, a Gardanne Beads autumn orange enameled brass small bellflower bead cap and a Czech glass 4mm copper penny fire-polished bead.
Add two seed beads to each end of the wire.
Add a TierraCast copper 2x2mm crimp bead to one end of the wire. Bring the other end of the wire through the same crimp bead in the opposite direction. Pull tight and flatten the crimp bead in place to secure.
Attach a copper 22 gauge earwire with 3mm ball and coil to the top of the earring using two 6mm copper 20 gauge open jump rings linked together.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown
below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from
the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up
the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color
scheme—it’s up to you!
