earring tutorial in 10 easy steps

Hello everyone!

It's been awhile since I've made a tutorial so I decided to make one today. I'm going to teach you how to make this pretty pair:




First off, here are the materials you will need:
gold wire, earring hook, headpin, round bead, flower coin, 6 small pearls, bead cap, small drop
for tools: I use needle nose pliers and wire cutters

* All of these can be replaced with something else--gold for silver, round bead for a faceted one, any sizes etc. The pearls can be 4mm bicones. You don't even need wire, you can use headpins for everything.


one
cut a strip of wire





two
On my pliers there is the space where there are two flat surfaces. They meet every time I squeeze the handle. I use that section to flatten the ends of wires so that I can slip a bead on and it won't fall off.

Just like this !





three
Slip on a pearl bead and finish the loop.



four
Repeat with the other 5 small beads. You can use the same strip of wire.
Set them aside.





five
Now take that same piece of wire. Make a loop.





six
Slip on your round bead.
Then your bead cap.






seven
Slip on your pearls and make sure to spread them out.





eight
Finally, slip on your rose coin.

Make a loop at the end. You can either make a standard loop, or you can make a wrapped look which goes like this:
Snip off your extra.



Doesn't look quite finished, right?

We need to add on the drop! Same concept.




nine


Hook it to the bottom and close the loop.




tada !





ten
Now hang it off your hooks:




Perfect! Now you're finished!
