Instructions

Finished Size: 3"

Step 1:
Use flat nose pliers to fold up the last 1/4" of one end of 4" of wire so that the wire is parallel to itself. Use the long end of the wire to string 1 CZ rondelle, 1 Zanzibar round, and 1 CZ rondelle. Form a wire-wrapped loop, doubling the wire wrap by wrapping the wire over itself back up toward the loop. Wrap the tail end of the wire down around the Zanzibar round and wrap it around 1/8" of the doubled wire below the bottom CZ rondelle.

Step 2: Use 6" of wire to form a wire-wrapped loop about 2 3/4" from one end of the wire. Do not trim the wire end. String 1 CZ rondelle, 1 wildflower bead, and 1 CZ rondelle. Form a wire-wrapped loop that attaches to the wrapped loop in the previous step. Do not trim the tail end. Use one tail end to wrap around the wildflower bead and wrap over the wire-wrap on the opposite side of the bead. Repeat, wrapping the other tail end around the wildflower and over the wire-wrap on the other side.

Step 3: Repeat Step 2, using the peony rounds and attaching the second wrapped loop to the open loop of the wildflower bead link. Attach 1 ear wire to the remaining wire-wrapped loop.

Step 4: Repeat Steps 1-3 to make a second earring.
