4 Now create the point at the bottom center of the earring. With the chainnose pliers, grip the wire ½ in/1 cm away from the previous bend, and bend the wire up and to the right to make a 90-degree angle. 5 With the chain-nose pliers, make a 45-degree angle in the wire ½ in/1 cm up from the point you just made. This bend will be symmetrical to the first bend. Make the post 6 Now make the post of the earring, which will pierce the ear, by bending the wire to fit under the U-shaped catch. With the chain-nose pliers, grip the wire 2 in/5 cm up from the previous bend, bend the wire toward the U at a 90-degree angle, and tuck it under the U-shaped catch.

A 2 Adjust the crimp bead so that it’s close to the clasp but the clasp has enough room to move freely. Squeeze the crimp bead with chain-nose pliers to flatten the bead around the two strands of wire. b b c 36 MAKE A STATEMENT 3 Add beads to the beading wire, covering both the long piece of wire and the tail for the first few beads. When you’re ready to end the string of beads on the opposite end of the wire, repeat this process. This step will determine the length of the bead strand, and how tight it is, so take a moment to adjust the tension when you’re adding the final crimp bead.

D d 5 Holding the loop with chain-nose pliers, tightly wrap the loop around the wire in between the loop and the bead. Wrap until you’ve reached the bead, usually two or three times. e 6 Snip the excess wire with clippers, and tuck the end into the wrapped wire with your chain-nose pliers so it doesn’t catch on anything. f e f 34 MAKE A STATEMENT LOOPING Looping is the best way to connect elements to both ends of a bead, rather than just one end, like with a headpin.
