 Instructions To Make Beaded Earrings

insert wires in beads

Step 1: 

Take the headpin wire and insert a seed bead into it. The headpin wire I bought has pins on both ends, so I usually cut the wire in half; creating 2 headpin wires with an open end and a closed-end. However, Inserting a seed bead into the headpin wire it to secure the main bead from coming out, in case it has a larger hole than the headpin. Insert a small wooden bead after inserting the seed bead. Push both beads near the headpin.

Step 2: 

Take the beaded headpin wire and hold the open end of the wire with the looping pliers. Create a small loop adjacent to the wooden bead (the bead near the closed-end).

Step 3: 

Coil the remaining wire around the wire below the loop. Keep coiling until the wire ends.

Step 4:

Follow step 3 and similarly bead more headpins, with beads at one end and a small loop at the other end. For these earrings, I’m keeping 1 large beaded wire in the middle, 2 medium beaded wires on both sides of it; and lastly, 2 small beaded wires on both sides of the medium ones. You can bead and arrange them however you want.

Step 5: 

Take any one of the hoop earrings and use the flat nose pliers to straighten the 90 degrees bent part of the open end. You can use memory wire but I’m using the headpin wires since I have tons of them! Coil thin wire around the earring band, about 0.5 cm part adjacent to the loop.

Step 6: 

Insert a seed bead into the hoop through its open end. Start to insert beads and wired beads (created in previous steps) into the hoop.
