Instructions

For Earrings

Step 1:
Use 1 eye pin to string 1 Chrysoprase Rondelle. Pass the eye pin through the middle section of the earwire. Bend the wire up toward the ear wire and wrap it around the base of the ear wire to form four coils.

Step 2: Use Soft Flex® Professional Flush Cutters to cut 2 inches of wire. Form a wire wrapped loop that attaches to the eye pin. String 1 Chrysoprase Rondelle and form a wire wrapped loop.

Step 3: Use 2 inches of wire to form a wire wrapped loop that attaches to the previous wire wrapped loop. String 1 Chrysoprase Rondelle and form a wire wrapped loop. Repeat entire step.

Step 4: Use 1 head pin to string 1 Chrysoprase Rondelle. Form a wire wrapped loop that attaches to the final wire wrapped loop formed in Step 3.

Step 5: Use 2 inches of wire to form a wire wrapped loop that attaches to the bottom left loop of the ear wire. String 1 Cyrysoprase Rondelle and form a wire wrapped loop.

Step 6: Repeat Steps 3 and 4.

Step 7: Repeat Steps 5 and 6 for the bottom right loop of the ear wire.

Step 8: Repeat Steps 1-7 to make a second earring.


For Ring

Step 1:
Use Soft Flex® Professional Flush Cutters to cut a 20 inch piece of 24 Gauge Silver Plated Soft Flex® Craft Wire.

Step 2: String 5 Chrysoprase Rondelles to the middle of the Soft Flex® Craft Wire.

Step 3: Place the beads and wire on top of your finger (or a ring sizer or marker the size of your finger). Wrap one end of wire around your finger until it is pointing straight up next to the rondelles. Repeat with the other wire, going the opposite direction.

Step 4: Use Soft Flex® Professional Needle Nose Pliers to bend one wire 90 degrees so that it is perpendicular to the ring shank. Wrap the wire around the shank to form seven. Loosely wrap the wire three times around the Chrysoprase Rondelles. Wrap the wire once around the ring shank on the other side. Trim the wire.

Step 5: Wrap the other wire around the ring shank for a total of seven coils.
