Royal Sceptre

by: Dwyn Tomlinson

With all the glory and gleam of the trappings of royalty - these glowing orbs make a fiery and fabulous pair of earrings that are drop dead sexy and extremely flattering!

The 3 mm Swarovski bicones that act as spacers have smallish holes. You may need to pick through to find ones with big enough holes. Some slide right onto the wire, and some just won't go at all. Don't force them, they will just crack.

Alternately - you could use a thinner wire than I did.

Make a simple loop at the end of the wire
Make a dangle with the 6 mm bicone, using a headpin, and a simple loop. Hang on the end of the wire.
Add an 8 mm filigree bead and a 3 mm bicone
repeat for a total of 3 x 8 mm bead and 3 mm bicone
then add a 13 mm filigree
Make a simple loop.
Add an ear wire.

Wear and enjoy!
