Project Instructions

Place one eye pin through a glass bead and bead cap.

Grasp the pin with your round nosed pliers. The position on the prong (thin or thick) will determine the length of the wrap. Bend the pin back to a 90 degree angle. Rotate the pliers to position one prong on top. Pull the pin forward around the top prong. Reposition then form the pin into a loop. Using pliers or your fingers, carefully wrap the wire around and down the stem. Continue as far down as you would like. Trim off extra wire. Using needle nose pliers or a crimp tool, smooth the tail of the wire.

Open a jump ring and attach the loop on the bead cap to the loop on the connector. Close the jump ring with jewelry pliers.

Cut three small lengths of chain: ¾", 1" and 1½".

Open a jump ring and place all three lengths of chain onto the jump ring. Before closing the jump ring, attach it to the bottom loop on the capped glass bead. Close the jump ring with bent nose pliers.

Place one clear seed bead and one chocolate metal bead onto a head pin.

Bend the pin to form a right angle. Cut the pin approximately ¼" beyond the bead. Use the round end of your pliers to grasp the end of the pin and curve the pin by using a rolling motion to fold it over a single round prong. Before closing the loop, place one beaded head pin onto the last link on one of the chain lengths. Repeat this step for the remaining metal beads.

Add an ear wire to the top of the earring to finish.

Repeat all steps for the remaining earring.
