- briolette beads
- jewelry wire (24-26 gauge)
- chain nose plier
- round nose plier
- earring hooks
Step 1: Lets Do This!
Cut 25 cm (approx 9.5-10 inches) of wire. Slide on your briolette a couple of inches, pull the wire up and twist them together. Short wire is pulled up vertically and long wire is pulled off to the side.
Step 2: Make a Loop
Pinch the base of the small wire with your round nose pliers. Pull the small wire over the pliers and around to make a loop. Then twist the wire around its base to hold the loop in place. Keep twisting the wire until there is nothing to twist no more!
Step 3: Wrappy Wrappy Wrap
Now take the long wire off to the side and start wrapping down around the other wires and towards the briolette. Continue down the briolette, but leave enough wire to swing back up to the top and pinch off.
Step 4: Add a Hook
And that is that!
