Lately, it's common to see nice, laser cut beads in jewelry supply stores. These cherry wood Celtic knot pendants are a good way to show you how to use eyepins to make dangle earrings. You can purchase these earrings here.

Step 1: Materials and Tools

Beads and Findings

  • Two (2) cherry wood laser cut pendants
  • Two (2) aventurine 3mm beads
  • Two (2) copper 2" eyepins
  • Two (2) antique copper finished hook earwire

Tools

  • Flush wire cutters
  • Round needle-nose pliers
  • Flat needle-nose pliers if needed for assistance

Step 2: Start With Accent Beads

The eyepin already has a a loop on one end, usually the loop that will connect to the earwire. Let's start first by putting the aventurine accent bead on the eyepin. About 1/8" above the bead bend the earwire wider then a right angle. Using the round needle nose pliers wrap the wire around the plier to make an open loop.

Step 3: Attach the Pendant and Close the Loop

Slide the Celtic knot pendant onto the open loop you just created. Wrap the eyepin wire around the 1/8" of exposed wire that you left. Cut the excess wire with wire cutters.

Step 4: Connect to Earwire

Take an earwire and with pliers loosen its loop. Attach the Celtic knot dangle you just prepared and close up the loop on the earwire. Repeat these steps for the second earring. The Celtic knot earrings are ready to wear! Enjoy!
