double hoop seed bead earrings

Prices may vary instore and online.
Step 1

Cut 30" of rhodium wire. 

Step 2

Place a small rhodium connector against a large one on the inside. Wrap one end of the wire, about four times, to secure the hold.

Step 3

Thread one seed bead onto the wire and wrap around the connectors one time.

Step 4

Add two seed beads and wrap.

Step 5

Continue adding beads and wrapping around the connectors until you get to where only one seed bead fits between the connectors and is even with the starting bead.
TIP: After each wrap, add the number of beads that will fit in between the two connectors. Use the image as a guide.

Step 6

Wrap the wire end around the two connectors about four times to match the starting side and trim the end. Make sure the wire end is flush.

Step 7

Open a jump ring, slide it around the place where the two connectors meet, close the jump ring.
TIP: To open and close a jump ring, simply grasp the jump ring on both sides with chain nose pliers and twist the ring open, from side-to-side. Never pull the jump ring which can cause distortion.

Step 8

Open another jump ring, slide it through the jump rig added in Step 7, and a fishhook earring and close the jump ring.

Step 9
Repeat Steps 1-8 for a second earring.
