The Whimsical Bead

‘A Drop of Elegance’ : Silver & Swarovski Crystal Earrings

$50.00 $120.00

These stunning earrings are not for the faint hearted and the true elegance of these earrings is hard to capture in photos (come and have a look at these in the studio if you get the chance!).
They contain beautiful 22mm genuine Swarovski crystal focal beads along with over 30 Swarovski crystals and sterling silver beads.
They have been created all with sterling silver and silver filled findings and would be a wonderful addition to your jewellery collection as a special statement pair of earrings (or when you just want to feel a little bit fancy and special!!)

You will learn all about the different types of silver available, how to wire wrap beads and crystals, and how to construct these cascading, Swarovski and sterling silver earrings.

Time permitting, Dani will also show you how to create your own sterling silver ball headpins to use in future earrings.

There will be a few different kit choices and each student will have a choice when they arrive.

This class will run with a maximum of 10 students.

Dani is the owner/creator of The Whimsical Bead and has been creating with polymer clay for 13 years and that, along with metal, is where her passion lies.

Dani loves to teach and pass on her knowledge and she feels very lucky that people want to learn from her.
