Cut a 6" length of wire and string a side-drilled bead onto the center. Bend the ends in a right angle above the bead. Hold the wires together and pass them through a rondelle. Use one wire to make a wrapped loop.
Repeat step to make two matching earring dangles.
To make your own ear wire: Cut a 3" length of wire and make a basic loop on one end. Wrap it around the handle of the wire rounder (or other mandrel) to form the hook. Cut off any extra wire, hammer the ear wire lightly, and use the wire rounder on the end. Attach the dangle to the loop. Repeat for a matching earring.
