DIY Earrings Project using Sew-on Rhinestones
I wanted to make some wire wrapped beads and ended up making a pair of bling earrings, using rhinestones, beads and wire. You will also need some chain with small links, some wire and head pins for the additional dangles, ear-wires and jewelry making tools. I am not going into details of the basic techniques. Here is the project:

    Continue wrapping around both the eye pin and the rhinestones in order to fix them into place. The pattern is all up to you. Note that too much wire will make the earrings heavier.
