Materials List

  • Round Nose Pliers
  • Chain Nose Pliers
  • Bent Nose Pliers
  • Wire Cutters
  • 2 2 inch 24 gauge silvertone head pins
  • 2 8x8mm silvertone squaredelles
  • 2 6mm clear swarovski spacers
  • 2 8x8mm amethyst swarovski cubes

Practice makes perfect with the loop. You may feel like it's impossible to make it look good at first, but do it a few times and each one will be better than the other!


  1. Take the headpin and string on the cube, squaredelle, then spacer.

  2. Grip the headpin with roundnose pliers and bend the headpin around, so it's facing down at 45 degrees.

  3. Readjust the roundnose pliers so the bottom arm is under the curve, then bend the wire around the pliers again. The wire will face down at 45 degrees the other direction.

  4. Readjust the pliers so the bottom arm is in the loop, and bend the wire down underneath, completing the loop. The wire should be parallel to the ground.

  5. Grip the loop with your chain nose pliers, and wrap the wire around the vertical headpin underneath the loop, until the entire headpin area is covered.

  6. Clip the excess wire with your wire cutters as close as possible.

  7. Squeeze the clipped wire with your chain nose pliers so no edge is sticking out.

  8. Bend open the leverback loop with pliers.

  9. Put the earring look into the leverback loop and twist the loop closed again.

  10. Your earring is finished! Now just complete the steps again to have your pair!
