24 – 2 mm green glass beads
Basic Tool Kit Duration
25 minutes Length: 2.5″
About 1 1/2″ from the end, wrap the silver wire around a smooth barreled object (a pen works great). Cross the ends of the wire and at the section where they intersect, bend the longer wire up 90 degrees with a chain nose pliers. Wrap the tail around the base and close it as if you were making a huge wire wrapped loop.
To create the dangle, thread the spacer bead, green bead and silver bead through a headpin and close with wire loop or simple loop. Attach earring hook. This casual earring will make your friends green with envy. (Tip: Round beads work great too!)
I love how simple these earrings are, yet versatile and classic. You can wear them with jeans or a nice evening dress. These earrings are one of my favorites.
2 – 5″ 20-gauge silver wire
4 – 3 mm white pearls
2 – 10 mm clear or white round glass bead
2 – silver headpins
Round nose pliers
Flat nosed pliers
Flush wire cutters
Mandrel to make the rounds for the hooks
To create the dangle, thread the glass bead and pearl through a headpin and close with a wire wrapped loop. For the hook, begin with a wire wrapped loop. (Tip: Before you close the loop, insert the dangle! I’ve done this without inserting the dangle a few times and left with a nice wire wrapped loop. You can still use this for another project.) After you close the loop, insert another pearl. Bend the wire 90 degrees with your flat nosed pliers. Next, wrap the wire around a mandrel or something round to create the hook. Bend up the last 1/4″ of the wire and cut the rest with your wire cutters. Repeat for the other earring.
