Designer Tips

  • Add pearl beads, scarf and hat to head pin, starting with the largest (10mm) pearl bead.
  • Make a simple loop at the top. New to jewelry-making? See Basic Jewelry-Making Technique Sheet (PDF) for instructions on making loops, and most secure way to open a jump ring (or other loop, such as the ear wire's loop.)
  • Twist open the loop on the ear wire, add snow man drop, and close loop.

Design Alternatives

  • For snowman earrings with faceted round clear crystal beads, see Snowman's Holiday Crystal Earrings.
  • Try sterling silver ear wires instead of silver plated ear wires.
  • For the snowman's scarf, try a 6mm glass disk bead in the color of your choice. (The Rhinestone wheel beads are not always available.)
