Instructions





Step 1:
This design is great for using leftover beads and Soft Flex beading wire clippings. Clip a bead stopper to one end of a 6" beading wire strand to keep your beads from slipping. String a crimp tube, 16 seed beads and another crimp tube.



Step 2: If you are using open jump rings, use your chain nose pliers to close both of them.

Step 3: Then, one end at a time, wrap your beading wire around one of your jump rings and back through the crimp tube. Once you have both ends around the jump ring and through the crimp tubes you may adjust the size of your loop.

Step 4: When you are happy with the shape, crimp the crimp tubes using the Magical Crimper or Regular Crimping Pliers. (I used the Magical Crimper to turn the crimp tube into a 2mm bead.) Click here for regular crimping instructions. Click here for magical crimping instructions.

Step 5: Once crimped securely, cut off your excess wire and using chain nose pliers, attach to your ear wire to the jump ring.

Step 6: Repeat for the second earring.
