Materials:

  • orange 20-gauge Soft Flex Craft Wire - 12 inches
  • one pair silver ear wires with ball
  • two 17x12mm ceramic Teeny Tiny Bat Beads
  • two 12x14mm Czech clear/black with silver foil lampwork ovals
  • round nose pliers
  • chain nose pliers
  • cutters

Instructions:

  1. Use 6 inches of wire to string one bat bead. Place the bead about 1-1/2 inches from one end of the wire. Bend the wire ends up around the top of the bat until they meet just above the bat's head. Use chain nose pliers to bend the long end of the wire so that it is perpendicular to the top of the bat's head. Use the short end of wire to wrap around the long length of wire. Trim the short wire end.
     
  2. Use the long wire end to string one oval. Form a wire-wrapped loop that attaches to one ear wire.
     
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for a second earring.
