Introduction: Shell Earrings

Broken Shell Earrings

Step 1: You Will Need:

-8 broken shell beads (i think you can get them from bead work shops or craft shops)
-16 tiny beads
-2 head pins
-2 ear hooks
-2 tiny loops (to connect the ear hook to the earring)
-Also you will need 2 pairs of plyers

Step 2: To Get Us Started:

place 2 smaller beads on the head pin and then a shell bead

Step 3: Step 3:

keep adding 2 smaller beads and then a shell bead

Step 4: Step 4:

When you get to this stage its time to start adding the loop that will attach the ear hook

Step 5: Time to Make the Loop

This is probably the most challenging part of making the earnings but if you are familiar with jewelry making you wont find it difficult.By using a pair of round nose plyers you will be able to bend the wire at the top of the head pin to make small loop.

Step 6: Connecting the Earring to the Ear Hook:

Use the small loop to connect the earring to the ear hook.Using two pairs of plyres bend the loop slightly out of place,this will enable you to insert both the hook and the earring into the loop.Then use the two plyers again to bend the loop back into shape.

Step 7: Finished

Do this again to complete a pair of earrings!:)
