Pattern Description:

**Sale**

Make these teardrops quickly and easily using my tested techniques that ensures that your earrings will come out great.

I have taught this as a class for years and through that experience have seen what gives students trouble and have designed a technique that bypasses the difficulties.

I am offering it at a sale price for now so that I can share this method with more people!

As is usual with all of my tutorials this one contains full color step by step photos for every individual step. The first four photos represent the the projects covered within the tutorial. The last two photos are variations that are meant to show other ideas of what you can do with this technique but are not covered in depth within the tutorial.

You will also receive a tutorial on making your own ear wires to match the earrings. These ear wires can be used on just about any type of earring.

You will receive two files to download. One is for the earring and the other is for an ear wire design that you can use to create ear wires for just about any earring design.

Note: The "weaving mandrels" are completely optional. The tutorial contains a link to them but they can be found in my shop at www.pampreslar.com.

Materials:

  • 2 pieces of 5 inches each round half hard 20 gauge wire
  • 2 pieces of 30 inches round dead soft 24 gauge wire
  • 30 - 4mm bicone shaped beads - Swarovski #5301 is perfect but you can substitute

You Will Also Need:

  • 2 pieces of 6 inches 18 gauge hard wire
  • OR
  • 2 - 18 gauge weaving mandrels
