Step 1: Create a Coil to Hold the Gimp
Create a coiled loop on the length of wire. Feed three strands of gimp through the coil.
Step 2: Wire Wrap the Loop on Top of the Gimp
Using your round nose pliers create a wrapped loop atop the bead cap, looping all the wire around the top of the cap.
Step 3: Attach the Magic Beans to the Gimp and the Dangle to the Ear Wire
Feed an Elaine Ray bean bead onto one gimp strand. Tie a knot at the very end of the strand of gimp to hold the bead on. Place a small drop of Fray Check on the knot. Repeat until all the tassel fringes are knotted. Open a square jump ring and attach the tassel to the ear wire.
