Make the Jack-O-Lantern earrings by Fusion Beads


– [Cody] Welcome to Fusion Beads. Today, I’m gonna show you how to make our Jack-o’-lantern earrings. These cute little earrings feature little pumpkin charms, and then they’re topped off with a Swarovski crystal bicone. So let’s take a look at all the products and tools we’ll need to make ’em. (upbeat music) For this project, we will be using the 6mm tangerine
Swarovski crystal bicone beads. I have an 18mm antique silver, pewter Jack-o’-lantern
charm by TierraCast. I have some 10mm
silver french ear wires. And then I have two inch, 20
gauge sterling silver eye pin. For my tools, all we’ll need today are chain nose, round nose,
and some wire cutters. You can find links to all
these beads and supplies in the description below. So let’s get started. Okay, so to make these
quick and easy earrings, you’re just gonna wanna take your eye pin, you’re gonna wanna take your bicone, slide it down all the way to the loop, You’ll wanna make a 90-degree bend. At the other end, you’ll
take your wire cutters, you’re gonna cut of the majority, just leaving enough to
create a simple loop. You’re gonna grab your round nose, and then you’re gonna turn
it back into a simple loop. You might need to center it a little bit on the top of your bicone there. And mine’s a little open, but that’s okay, ’cause I’m going to be opening it anyway. To the side, I’m gonna
slide in my pumpkin charm. These are super cute,
they’re two-sided there, so they have a lot of detail. Then you’re just gonna go
ahead and close that loop. And then, we’re ready to add our ear wire. So you’re just gonna wanna
open the loop to the side, and seeing as how the loop that comes from the manufacturer on the eye pins won’t fit over this, you’re just gonna wanna slide it on through the back here. So you’ll just slide it on this way, and then it should pop down, and there you go. And then you just go ahead
and close your ear wire. And there you’ve got these really cute Jack-o’-lantern earrings. And this is a quick and easy design that could really be switched out to any kind of charms. So thank you for checking out this video, and if you’re new to our YouTube channel, make sure to click the
