How to make Wire Wrapped Beaded Earrings:

Step 1:

Start with a head pin and slide a gold bead (spacer).

String the glass bead on the head pin. Glass beads can be used for various beading projects and have a versatile utility.

Similarly string a couple more spacers and crystal beads. Spacers are useful in creating different patterns; crystal beads add a royal touch to the earring.

Bend the wire at a right angle with your finger.

BWW4Step 5:

With the round nose plier grip the wire and bend it (the wire) downwards.

BWW6Step 7:

Have a grasp of the loop and wrap the wire around the headpin stem using your hand.

Insert a fish hook wire.
