Pretty amethyst coloured Queen of Hearts DIY earring kit, made with heart shaped peacock beads, silver lined seed beads, and either silver plated or sterling silver ear wires, depending on your choice.
This jewellery kit is suitable for a beginner; by making this kit, you will learn how to make a wire loop, open and close jump rings, and add ear wires. Full written instructions are included. It is of course equally suitable for someone who already has these skills.
These heart shaped Peacock Beads are unusual, and I believe not so easy to find. Each one measures approximately three quarter inch x three quarter inch, or 19mm x 19mm in metric.. The name 'Peacock Bead' comes from the iridescent colour on the markings.
As standard, the kits come with silver plated ear wires. If however you are more comfortable with sterling silver, this option is also available. The kit itself is suitable for complete beginners.
All the beads are coated glass beads and when loose should be kept away from young children.
Please Note: Tools required but not supplied with kit are: Chain nose pliers, round nose pliers, and either side cutters or strong kitchen scissors. These are all required to bend and cut the head pin (threading wire), and shape it into a round loop to attach to the ear wires.
