Petite Inspirations

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

Red Revolution


Length: 2″
 Supplies: 
2 – 18 x 13 mm flat oval bead
2 – gold jump beads
2 – 3″ 22 guage gold colored copper wire (for hooks)
2 – 4″ 22 guage gold colored copper wire (for beads)

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

Duration
15 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 bead and close loop with same rolling technique. Center decorative wire on bead. Attach hook and gem with jump bead. Create matching earring.
