Pumpkin Earrings

Here's a little tutorial on how to make easy-peasy pumpkin earrings! I used the following:

(2) 3" 22 gauge sterling silver headpins
(2) 1 mm sterling silver round beads
(2) 3 mm sterling silver saucer beads
(2) 4mm dk. emerald swarovski bicones
(2) SueBeads pumpkin beads
(2) handmade ear wires*

String one 1mm round, 1 3mm saucer, 1 pumpkin bead and 1 crystal onto the 3" headpin. Make a wrapped loop. Open the loop on your ear wire and insert the earring unit. Close the ear wire loop! Yay - you made pumpkin earrings! So cute!

* I used the book "Handcrafted Wire Findings" to make my own ear wires!
