Bead Project TypeEarrings
- 2 earring posts featuring an attached loop
- 4 jump rings
- 2 .5-inch (in inside diameter) closed rings
- 2 pairs of chain nose pliers
- Open all four of your jump rings. Do this by placing each side of the jump ring in each of your pliers so the opening is facing up. Next, twist the right side towards you until you have a gap large enough to thread on your components.
- On the first jump ring, attach the large .5-inch diameter closed ring.
- Close the jump ring by placing each side in each of your pliers; twist the right side away from you and then back to you while pushing in slightly. Do not add too much pressure or the jump ring could become misshapen.
- Take your second jump ring; thread onto it the loop section of your earpost and the jump ring that is holding your ring feature.
- Close the jump ring.
- Repeat for second earring, and that’s it! You have a new pair of fabulous earrings to enjoy or give as a gift.
