These do require knowing cubic right angle weave, but after that they are very simple, quick and make a great gift.
They do require 56 3 mm Swarovski Element crystals for the pair, but when have I ever designed something with less?
On double fireline, I create one column of 3 cubes with the 3 mm crystals. In this case I used one color for the walls and a contrast for the floor and ceiling beads. I embellished the spaces with a size 15 bead, then used a head pin to stack some additional accent beads and a larger crystal, but any accents would do. I wire wrapped the top and hung from a simple ear wire. The earring card is my business card with holes poked using my very sharp Tulip awl.
So far I've made black and silver with red accents, silver with green and red accents, green with gold accents and gold with green accents.....next up I'm going to use some 3 mm Swarovski pearls with a nice big 6 mm Indigo crystal on the bottom.
Fun, easy and a nice little bit of sparkle for the holidays!
I tuck these in my purse and gift them as the opportunity arises.
