Acrylic pillow case beads and some neatly made wire spirals can give you a pretty pair of beaded spiral earrings. Here we see how to make the spirals out of wire and the steps for connecting them to make the earrings.
- Round Nose Pliers
- Flat Nose Pliers
- Wire Cutter
How to make spiral earrings:
Slide the pillow case bead and a metal spacer bead on an eye pin. Choose an eye pin of suitable length so you would have enough wire left to make a loop after sliding the beads.
Using round nose pliers bend the wire forming a loop.
Now for the spiral, start by taking a piece of the silver wire – cut the wire of suitable length using wire cutters. Make a loop using round nose pliers.
Hold the loop as shown using flat nose pliers with one hand and with your free hand start winding/rotating the wire around the loop.
Keep rotating till you have enough wire left to make a loop at the end.
Using round nose pliers make a loop with the remaining part of the wire.
