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.
cut a strip of wire
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 !
Slip on a pearl bead and finish the loop.
Repeat with the other 5 small beads. You can use the same strip of wire.
Set them aside.
Now take that same piece of wire. Make a loop.
Slip on your round bead.
Then your bead cap.
Slip on your pearls and make sure to spread them out.
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.
Hook it to the bottom and close the loop.
Now hang it off your hooks:
Perfect! Now you're finished!
