Veela Earrings By Becky Nunn!

What I love about the Nunn Design Collection of Bead Caps is that there are so many ways that you can combine them.  With each combination, you have a unique and fresh look.  Add in some different beads and the options grow even greater!  The best way to design with these little beauties is to keep trying different combinations until you get something that feels just right.  It is amazing how a design can change by just turning a bead cap upside down.  Have fun exploring the options!

Step 1:
Thread onto a Base Metal Eye Pin one of the Ivory Swarovski Crystal Pearl Beads and 1 of the 8mm Flower Beadcaps.  The fit might be a little tight for the Swarovski Crystal Pearl to fit the opening of the bead cap.  Press down gently on the bead cap and the petals will slightly bend around the bead cap.  Thread on the second 8mm Flower Petal Beadcap so the petals are alternating.
