Instructions

Finished Size: 1 7/8"


Step 1:
Use 6" of wire to string 1 bat bead. Place the bead about 1 1/2" from one end of the wire. Bend the wire ends up around the top of the bat until they meet just above the bat's head. Use chain nose pliers to bend the long end of the wire so that it is perpendicular to the top of the bat's head. Use the short end of wire to wrap around the long length of wire. Trim the short wire end.

Step 2: Use the long wire end to string 1 oval. Form a wire-wrapped loop that attaches to 1 ear wire.

Step 3: Repeat Steps 1 and 2 for a second earring.
