Pearl and Mother of Pearl Earrings Tutorial

  1. 1. 1 Pearl and Mother of Pearl Earrings By Judy Larson Materials: 10” of 22 gauge round wire One pair silver plated fish hook earrings Two 20mm mother of pearl disks Two 8mm freshwater circle pearls Two 2½” silver plated headpins Note: The wire used in this tutorial is silver plated craft wire. It is considered dead soft. Tools: Round, flat and chain nose pliers Flush cutter Ruler Directions: Step 1: Insert a headpin into one of the Mother of Pearl disks. Make a wire wrapped loop at the top. Repeat with the other Mother of Pearl disk. Set aside. Step 2: Cut the 10” piece of 22 gauge wire in half. Create a small wire wrapped loop 1 ½” from the end of each wire. Thread a pearl on each wire and start a wire wrapped loop on the other end. Hint: Do not cut off the wire from wrapping any of the loops until the last wire wrapped loop is made. That way, you can make them all even. If you wait to cut off all wires until you have all 4 wrapped loops made, you will be assured of matched earrings. When all the wire wrapped loops are completed, flush cut the wire ends and tuck them in using chain nose pliers. Step 3: Slide a wire wrapped disk onto the loop just created and finish the wrapping. Step 4: Open the loop on one earring and slide on a bead assembly. Close the earring loop. Repeat with the other earring. Your earrings are done!
  2. 2. 2 With just a few changes to the components of the earrings you just made, you can whip up a variety of earrings that everyone will love!
