Watch our technique videos on the TierraCast Blog (look for video on simple loops).

 

Tip: When making the small simple loops, grip the end of the wire 1/8” or so* from the tip of the round nose plier jaws to keep the loops as small as possible. Use scrap wire clippings for practice. (*Round nose plier jaws vary.)

Steps

  1. Pick up one head pin and string on one pearl. At top of pearl bend wire over at right angle and trim to ¼”. Use round nose pliers to make a small simple loop.
  2. Pick up one trimmed wire segment. Create an eyepin by bending at right angle ¼” from one end and making a small simple loop. Open loop and attach pearl dangle. Close loop.
  3. Onto eyepin string one bell cone, one bow bead, one bicone crystal, and one 2mm bead. At top of final bead bend wire at right angle. Trim to 3/8” and form a simple loop.
  4. Open the loop on one ear wire and attach to simple loop. Close loop.
  5. Repeat Steps 1-4 for second earring.
