Spinosaurus Earrings

Our Spinosaurus earrings make a bold statement. We take a simple set of V ear wires and quickly transform them into gravity-defying spines not seen since the Cretaceous period. With a mix of glamour, punk rock, and dinosaur allure, the charm of these earrings will not go extinct. These earrings begin with a secure row of Miyuki Square beads (SB) along the V shaped ear wires. Once you've added the base of squares you'll use brick stitch to create your spines. Stack each spike with a size 8/0 seed bead, 2 mini Miyuki spacers (SPR22), and one size 15/0 seed bead on top.
