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. 

Take about a 1″ length wire and with chain nose pliers, bend over about 1/16″ wire over itself to create a headpin. Thread the glass bead through and close with a wire loop. Attach wired bead to hook. Create matching earring.
