Size: 5" long with tassel 

Instructions:

1. Carefully remove the jump ring from the top of the tassel and pass a 4" piece of wire through the loop that the jumpring had been in.

2. Make a bend in the wire in the shape of a V about 1" from the end so that the two ends of the wire are pointing in the same direction. One is 1" long and the other is 3" long.

3. String 1 wood disk, 1 blown glass rondelle, 1 wood disk, a 10mm white howlite round, and a 6mm white howlite round. The short part of the wire will be covered up. Make a wrapped loop with the wire that emerges from the top. 

4. Open the loop of an ear wire and attach the tassel stack. 

5. Repeat steps 1-4 to make the second earring.
