Instructions

Step 1: Choose your color and size of CZ and unique pair of earwires. A lighter color in a smaller size will be more delicate. A brighter color in a larger size will sparkle a little bit extra. Next, choose a complimentary color of Soft Touch Wire .010/Very Fine.

Step 2: Use Soft Flex® Flush Cutters to cut five 3 inch strands of .010/Very Fine wire.

Step 3: Hold five strands together and use them to string the 2mmx2mm crimp tube and 1 ear wire. Pass the wires back through the tube. Make sure you have at least 2 inches of wire remaining in each strand and use Magical Crimping Pliers to secure the crimp tube. Trim tail wires.

Step 4: Trim the remaining wires to the following legths: 3/4", 1 1/4", 1 1/2", 1 3/4", and 2".

Step 5: Use the 3/4" wire to string 5 CZ beads and one 1mmx1mm crimp tube. Place the tube at the very end of the wire and use Micro Crimping Pliers to secure the crimp tube.

Step 6: Repeat Step 4 with each remaining wire, stringing 4 beads on the 1 1/4" wire, 3 beads on the 1 1/2" wire, 2 beads on the 1 3/4" wire, and 1 bead on the 2" wire.

Step 7: Repeat Steps 2-6 to make a second earring.
