Fairy Drops

by: Jennifer Tough

AKA Fairy lights part 2

AKA Fairy Lights (Instant gratification version)

My necklace from last week is still not quite done. Had to put it aside to work on some other tasks, but I really wanted to make something with the sequins that I could wear right away.

These are perfect - practically light as air, minimal wire wrapping, and of course can be completed in less than 30 minutes. Much less probably.

The curved tubes can easily be cut down to any size - no need to purchase multiple sizes. Note than when you do cut one in half with your wire cutters, the cut side will crimp close. Squeeze the sides of the crimped tube,  and tube will open right back up!

I've left one tube full length, and the other I cut roughly in half.

String in this order:
*headpin
*crystal
*sequin
*tube

Created a wrapped loop - make 6 in total. For each earring, string three onto a jump ring, and then attach another jump ring to that. Attach the earwire to the second jumpring.
