Earrings with Sundial Shell Beads

STEP 1
Slide a mother-of-pearl bead on a headpin; form a loop above bead. Trim excess wire.
STEP 2
Gently bend an eye pin into a curve; insert pin through one hole on a sundial shell, allowing it to curve around inside of shell and emerge from other hole. It may take more than one try to get the pin shaped to the right curve so it pops out of the shell.
STEP 3
Pull wire through opposite hole of shell; form a wrapped loop, attaching loop to drop on earwire before wrapping. Trim excess wire.
STEP 4
Open bottom loop below shell; slide on mother-of-pearl dangle. Close loop.
STEP 5
Repeat Steps 1 - 4 for a second earring, making sure shells hang opposite of one another, one with open end at top and the other at the bottom.
