wire wrapped crystal earrings

The natural shape of these crystal beads give these earrings a very boho feel while the peach hue offers a feminine touch. These could easily be shortened with less beads and lengthened with more to make unique shoulder dusters.
Step 1

Cut six 5" [12.7 cm] pieces of 22 gauge wire.

Step 2

Using the tip of round nose pliers, grab one piece of the wire and roll the wire around the tip of the pliers twice.

Step 3

Before removing the wire from the pliers, bend the end of the wire underneath the coils in the opposite direction of the pliers.

Step 4

Remove the wire from the pliers. Take the end of the wire and bend it back through the wire coils.

Step 5

Place the wire between nylon jaw pliers and pull the wire to create a knot in the end of the wire.

Step 6

Thread a crystal bead onto the knotted head pin and use round nose pliers to create a messy wrapped loop.

Step 7

Using a piece of the cut wire, create a messy wrapped loop on one end. Before creating the wraps, thread the end of the wire through the loop of the wrapped loop from the previous step.

Step 8

Thread a crystal bead onto the wire and use round nose pliers to create a messy wrapped loop.

Step 9

Repeat Steps 7-8 to add another bead.

Step 10

Using pliers, attach an ear wire to the top loop.

Step 11

Repeat Steps 2-10 to create the second earring.
