How to make Butterfly Bead earrings:

Using round nose pliers bend and make a loop at the top of the wire.
Gently bend the wire and bring the lower part of the wire upward. Make a neat wrap at the top (close to the loop) bringing the wire to the right as shown.
Bring the wire down.
Assess the length required for the spiral and cut off any excess wire using wire cutter. Now start making a spiral using round nose pliers.
Keep rotating till you have a spiral of the required size. For a more detailed tutorial on making spirals, check this.
You now have this…
Insert a fish hook ear wire at the top. Open and close the hook using flat nose pliers.
The earring is complete.
