Instructions

For Earrings

Step 1:
To make ear wires for the earrings, use Soft Flex® Professional Flush Cutters to cut about 2 inches of Soft Flex® Craft Wire from the spool. Use the narrow end of Soft Flex® Professional Round Nose Pliers to form a simple loop at one end of the wire. Move the pliers 1/2 an inch away from the simple loop. Using the wide end of the pliers, wrap the wire in the opposite direction as the simple loop. Repeat entire step to form a second ear wire.

Step 2: Use Soft Flex® Professional Flush Cutters to cut 2 inches of wire from the spool. Form a wire wrapped loop that attaches to 1 ear wire. String one 4mm crystal, one 6mm crystal, and one 4mm crystal and form a wire wrapped loop.

Step 3: Repeat Step 2, attaching the first wire wrapped loop to the second loop formed in the previous step.

Step 4: Use Soft Flex® Professional Flush Cutters to cut 2 inches of wire from the spool. Form a wire wrapped loop that attaches to the second loop formed in the previous step. String one 4mm crystal, one 6mm crystal, and one 4mm crystal. Wrap the tail end of the wire up and around the bottom bead.

Step 5: Repeat Steps 2-4 for the second earring.


For Bracelet

Step 1: To make the Hook clasp, use Soft Flex® Professional Flush Cutters to cut a 4 inch piece of Soft Flex® Craft Wire from the spool.

Step 2: With your needle nose pliers, bend your wire in half so you now have two wires side by side. Use your pliers to pinch the top, leaving no space between the two wires. Use round nose pliers to grip the wires about 1/2 an inch from the bend. Wrap the wires around the pliers to form the hook.

Step 3: Use both tail ends of wire to form a wire wrapped loop.

Step 4: Use Soft Flex® Professional Flush Cutters to cut 1 1/2 inches of wire from the spool Form a wire wrapped loop that attaches to the wire wrapped loop formed in Step 3. String one 4mm crystal and form a wire wrapped loop.

Step 5: Use Soft Flex® Professional Flush Cutters to cut 2 inches of wire from the spool. Form a wire wrapped loop that attaches to the loop in the previous step. String one 4mm crystal, one 6mm cystal, and one 4mm crystal. Form a wire wrapped loop.

Step 6: Repeat Step 5 five times.

Step 7: Repeat Step 4, making sure to double the size of the final wire wrapped loop so that the hook will attach to the loop.
