Project Type: Make a Project

Bead Type: Wire, Miscellaneous

Time to complete: Under an hour

Bead Technique Used: Chainmail/Wirework

Bead Project Type: Earrings

Difficulty Level: Beginner

 

Materials:

  • 1mm gold colored wire
  • Two red bugle beads
  • Two 6mm white pearl beads
  • A pair of gold-plated earwires
  • Two eyepins
  • Two headpins
  • Round-nose pliers
  • Wire cutters
  • Flat-nose pliers
  • Long-nose pliers

Instructions:

  1. Pinch one end of the wire with your flat-nose pliers, leaving a 1" tail. Begin wrapping the wire around the pliers. For reference, I made seven wraps in total. Next, slide off the wrapped wire from the pliers.
     
  2. Adjust the Christmas tree spiral to your liking. I chose to make it shorter. Trim the wire to about 2”.
     
  3. Make a loop at the bottom of the Christmas tree spiral using round-nose pliers. It is easier to make the loop by holding the spiral with another pair of pliers. Trim any excess.
     
  4. Create a loop at the top of the Christmas tree spiral. Trim any excess wire.
     
  5. Repeat last four steps for other Christmas tree spiral. Make any adjustments so both Christmas tree spirals are the same height.
     
  6. Slide a bugle bead onto a headpin and form a loop at the top. Attach the bugle bead drop to the bottom loop of a Christmas tree spiral. Repeat with other bugle bead.
     
  7. Slide a pearl bead onto an eye pin. Form a loop and trim the excess. Attach one end of the eye pin to the top loop on the Christmas tree spiral and the other end to the loop on the ear wire.
     
  8. Repeat last step for other earring.
