Step 1:

Take a round object and wrap the 1mm (18 ga) wire. After wrapping and creating a perfect circle, make a loop on one end of the wire to serve as your bail.

Step 2:

Picture of
Cut approximately 40 inches of 28 ga wire from the spool and start wrapping it onto the earring frame, starting inside the loop and wrap the entire earring frame.

Step 3:

Picture of
Keep wrapping until you pass through the loop again. Then slide in a bicone into the wire and continue to wrap the wire, but this time with the bicone.

Step 4:

Picture of
Continue wrapping the entire earring frame with the bicones then cut off excess wires.

Step 5:

Picture of
Cut approx. 30 inch 28 ga wire. Crossing the center of the earring frame and in between 2 bicones, wrap around the earring frame 2 – 3 times neatly. Then bring the wire down the center of the earring frame, parallel the last bicone and wrap once in between 2 bicones.


Step 6:

Picture of
Continue wrapping up and down, and in between 2 bicones until you reached the very last bicone. Secure the wire by wrapping tightly and cutting excess wire. Attach ear wires and you're done!
