I took my piece of silver plated wire, placed my bead on the end and bent the wire around until I was happy with it.
Attach the swirl via a jump ring to the silver chain.
For the earrings, take a piece of wire and put your lava bead on, closing the ends with your needle nose pliers, leaving enough room for the jump ring.. Do the same with your other bead.
Attach the bead to your earring hook with a jump ring.
As I had to post it to my mother, I made a nice little box for it.
I used a tin box that had contained tea leaves and glued on a label with the name I use for things I make.
I painted a heart on top to cover the name of the tea.
I wrapped them together in a plastic bag and backed them onto a piece of card.
I put them inside the box and added some dried rose petals to make it cute :)
I hope she likes them.
