Instructions

Step 1: Cut 2-4" lengths, 2-5" lengths, and 2-6" lengths of Soft Flex Wire from the spool.

Step 2: Crimp a crimp tube at the bottom of each of the 6 strands, using crimping pliers.Cut off any excess wire below the crimp using Flush Cutters.

Step 3: On each of the 6 strands, place one clear Czech glass bead, one Ceramic Bat, and one clear Czech glass bead.

Step 4: Starting with the shortest strand, place other end of wire through a crimp tube, through the split ring, and back through the crimp tube. Once desired length is measured (I have made my shortest 3"), secure crimp using crimping pliers.

Step 5: Repeat step 4, only making the length longer (I have my middle strand 4" long).

Step 6: Repeat step 4 for the longest length (mine is 5" long).

Step 7: Place split ring, which should have 3 graduated lengths of Soft Flex, through leverback earwire, into notch where it will stay in place.

Step 8: Repeat steps 4-7 for other earring.
