20 gauge round silver wire
4mm round silver plated beads
Two 10 x9mm double triangle silver plated beads
Two 10mm brushed round silver plated beads
Two 12mm puffed square beads
Fish hook style earrings
Note: The wire used in this tutorial is silver
plated craft wire. It is considered dead soft.
Round, flat and chain nose pliers
Soft jaw pliers
Step 1: Cut two 4” pieces of 20 gauge wire for each pair of earrings,
making sure one end of each wire is flush cut. Make three full
spirals on the flush cut end of each wire. Use soft jaw pliers to do
this so the wire is not scratched or marred while making the spirals.
Hint: Make sure that you make the earrings mirror images of each
Step 2: Slide beads on each
spiraled wire in the
appropriate order. For the
earrings made in gold wire,
fold the spiral up over the
bead, making sure that the
spirals are going in
Step 3: Make a wire wrapped loop at the top of each bead assembly. Hint: Do not cut off the wire
after wrapping the first earring until the wire wrapped loop in the other earring is made. That way,
you can make the wraps even. When both the wire wrapped loops are completed, flush cut the wire
ends and tuck them in using chain nose pliers.
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!
