These Funky Purple Pearl Earrings are a remixed version of an old classic. If you already know how to wire wrap jewelry, these will be a piece of cake for you. Even if you are new to wire wrapping, though, these beautiful earrings are a great place to start. In just three simple steps, you can make these impressive pearl earrings. The elegant eggplant color and organic shape of the beads add some extra energy to these spunky earrings. If you are more of a visual learner, follow along with the video tutorial below.

Materials List

  • Two top-drilled pearls
  • Two 8-inch pieces 22-gauge wire
  • Two ear wires
  • Chain nose pliers
  • Round nose pliers
  • Wire cutters


  1. Slide a piece of wire into the hole of a pearl, leaving ½ inch sticking out on one side. Bend both wire ends up at 90-degree angle to the hole of the bead. Bend wires over the top of the bead, making a triangle shape. Bend remaining ends of wire up, perpendicular to bead hole. Trim shorter wire to 1/8 inch from bend.

  2. Bend longer remaining wire at 90-degree angle. Use round nose pliers to make a loop. Wrap remaining wire around bends and down to cover bead hole. This can be done with neat, tight wraps or in “messy wraps.”

  3. Open an ear wire; slide loop you just made on and close ear wire. Repeat for the second earring.

Very easy and cute earrings. I like the fact it not only has written instructions but also a video tutorial. Some people learn best by seeing it done. My sister in law has trouble following a written instruction. She will really like this. Thank you for both, they are greatly appreciated by both of us.
