Petite Inspirations

In the name of inspiration and all things interesting to me and hopefully you.

Cobblestone


Length: 2″
Supplies: 
2 – 8 mm round gold beads
4 – gold jump rings
2 – 4 mm gold spacer beads 
2 – 10 mm gold decorative wire links
2 – 2.5″ 20 guage gold colored copper wire (for hooks)
2 – 3″ 22 guage gold colored copper wire (for beads)

Tools
Basic Tool Kit
Ring Mandrel or Sharpie marker (to create round bend for hooks)

Duration
20 minutes

The Idea

To create the hook, take the 2″ wire and create a loop at one end. Wrap the wire around a cylindrical object, something like a permanent marker for the round bend. 

With a gold wire, create simple loop and continue rolling over the wire. Use flat nose pliers to hold wire parallel while rolling wire. Make 2-3 loops, insert spacer bead, gold bead and close with a wire wrapped loop. Center wire hoop on either side of the bead. Attach jump ring to wired bead and decorative wire link. Attach another jump ring to the link and earring hook. Create matching earring.
