Step 1

Step 2

Wire wrap the beads and attach to earring component

Slide each pearl onto a headpin, and make a closed wire loop at the top.   If you need help learning to make a loop, follow these instructions

Now we need to wire wrap the crystal bead component with a closed loop at the top and bottom of the bead.  Cut several inches of sterling silver wire.  Make a round loop with your pliers, and attach this to the pearl bead loop you just completed.  Close the loop.

Slide the Bali silver bead cap onto the wire upside down, then the Swarovski crystal bead so it rests in the cup of the bead cap.    Now make another loop on the top of the crystal bead.  Before closing the loop, attach the wire to the earring component, then close the loop.

That's it!  Your pearl and crystal earrings are ready to wear!
