Instructions

Step 1: With 18g wire, using the smallest mandrel on the medium sized pliers, make a loop. Then, using the largest mandrel on the large sized pliers, make a second loop next to the first - forming an "S" shape. Snip the wire leaving about an inch to work with.



Step 2: Using the chain nose pliers, grab the bottom half the "S" for stability.

Step 3: Then wrap the wire once around the base and snip off any excess. Create 1 of these pieces per earring.

Step 4: Slip the connector onto an ear wire. I made my ear wire using the Wubbers pliers too!

Step 5: Next, with 22g wire, using the smallest mandrel on the medium sized pliers, make a loop. Then, using the largest mandrel on the medium sized pliers, make a second loop next to the first - forming an "S" shape. Work harden the 22g component using a nylon tipped hammer on a hard flat surface (like an anvil). Create 5 of these pieces per earring.

Step 6: Using chain nose pliers, open the larger loop on each connector, string a bead on the wire, and then close the ring.



Step 7: Using chain nose pliers, open the smaller loop on each connector, add the large connector, and then close the ring.



Step 8: Repeat for all 5 dangles and then put together a second, identical earring.
