Rose Charm Earrings

Cute little metal rose charms make the focal part of this earring, don't be afraid of mixing gold and silver, they happen to work beautifully together, and of course there is the added bonus that they will go with any of your other jewellery too  :)

You will need:

  • 1 pr Earring Wires 
  • 2 x 50mm Eye Pins 
  • 2 Metal Rose Charms 
  • 2 Oval Tube Beads 

What you do:

  • Open up the jump ring attached to the Rose Charm and lay to one side for later. 
  • Open the loop on the bottom of the eye pin, hook on the rose charm and close the loop tightly. 
  • Slide the long oval tube bead onto the pin. 
  • Form a loop with the wire at the top using some round nose pliers, cutting off the excess with some wire cutters. 
  • Using the coloured ring you put to one side before, link together the earring wire and the loop on the top of the pin. 
  • Make a second earring.
