day of the dead dangle earrings

Step 1
Cut the head off of two head pins to make two long wires. 
Step 2
With the first long wire, make a simple loop at one end of the wire.
 
TIP: Form a simple wire loop by grasping the end of the wire between the jaws of a pair of round nose pliers. Rotate the pliers toward you, keeping a firm grip on the wire until a small loop is formed.  
Step 3
Wrap the wire around the barrel of a Sharpie® marker to form a circle.
 
TIP: Use your fingers to shape around the marker. 
Step 4
Slide off of the marker, trim wire on the opposite end, even to the simple loop. 
Step 5
Slightly bend the wire about ¼" from end opposite the eye pin loop to complete the base of the ear wire. Set aside. 
Step 6
With the second wire, make a simple loop on one end of the wire. 
Step 7
Thread on a metal rondelle, open side up, and a skull bead. Make another simple loop under the skull bead. Trim excess wire. 
Step 8
Open the loop slightly on the ear wire, slide on the loop at the top of the metal rondelle and close loop. Set aside. 
Step 9
Slide a clear teardrop bead onto a head pin. Make a simple loop on top and trim excess wire. 
Step 10
With excess wire from the teardrop link, make a simple loop at one end. Before closing the loop, slide onto the loop on top of the teardrop link. Close the loop. 
Step 11
Thread on an acrylic rose bead and make a simple loop on top of the rose. Before closing the loop, thread onto the loop below the skull bead and close loop. Trim excess wire. 
Step 12
Repeat Steps 1-11 for a second earring. 
Step 13
Add a drop of glue into the eye sockets of the skull beads and place a light rose crystal over the glue in each socket. Let dry.
