Instructions



Step 1: Use 2 1/2" of Onyx wire to string 1 crimp tube. Pass the wire back through the tube, forming a small loop, and crimp. String 1 Black Tourmaline rectangle, 1 crimp tube, and 1 pearl. Pass back through the tube, leaving a loose loop of wire around the pearl, and crimp. Set aside.

Step 2: Use 1 1/2" of Coral wire to string one end of one connector, 1 crimp tube, and 1 pearl. Pass the first end of the wire back through the tube and pass the other end of the wire back through the tube leaving a loose loop of wire around the pearl, and wasting as little wire as possible. Crimp the tube.

Step 3: Repeat Step 2 using Antique Brass Color wire and attaching the wire to the other end of the same connector.

Step 4: Attach 1 eye pin to 1 ear wire. Use the ear wire to string 1 Coral bead. Begin forming a wire wrapped loop with a large (at least 6mm) loop. Prior to closing and wrapping the loop, attach it to the center of the connector and the small loop of wire formed in Step 1.

Step 5: Repeat Steps 1 to 4 for the second earring.
