Cut two 6" pieces of 22 ga. wire.
Choose two pearls that are close in size and shape.
Using Beadalon® round nose pliers, make small loop on bottom (do not close).
Place leaf in loop and close.
Slide a pearl over the wire so it’s placed on top of the leaf.
At top of pearl, position baler behind the wire and bend the wire downward (to form earring wire).
Trim excess wire. It should be same length as bottom of leaf.
Use round nose pliers to slightly bend up end.
Repeat all steps for second earring.
Ensure both earrings are same shape, size, length.
Place small dab of glue on top and bottom of pearl so it doesn’t shift.
Run hand over ends to ensure there are no sharp edges. If there are, use round nose pliers to tuck them in.
