spider seed bead earring

Eek! The creepy spiders are fabulous Halloween earrings! See just how easy they are to make for yourself!
Step 1

Thread two gray faceted beads onto a black headpin and make a simple loop at the top.
TIP: To form a simple wire loop, first bend the wire to a 90° angle just above the last bead. Trim wire to 3/8"-½" [0.3 cm-1.3 cm] from the bend. Grasp the end of the eye pin 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 2

Cut four 8" [20.3 cm] pieces of wire.

Step 3

Bend one of the wires to find the middle, then wrap it around the headpin between the two gray faceted beads. Arrange the ends so there is one pointing out to the left and the other to the right.

Step 4

Repeat Step 3 for the remaining three wires.
TIP: You should have four wires on the left and four on the right for your spider’s legs.

Step 5

Thread seed and bugle beads onto the wires. Use your round nose pliers to make tiny coils at the end and trim excess wire.

Step 6

Bend and arrange the beaded wires into your spider’s legs.

Step 7

Add a jump ring to the simple loop at the top of your spider and then add a second jump ring, including a fishhook ear wire, to the first jump ring.

Step 8

Repeat Steps 1-7 for a second earring.
