Step 1. Cut a strand of SoftFlex about
9 inches long. String an end of the SoftFlex through one crimp bead, loop
through the small, round section of one end of the clasp, then back down
through the crimp bead. Using a crimp tool, crush the crimp bead.
Trim the end of the SoftFlex.
Step 2. Begin by stringing one Purple Pearl,
one Circle Spacer, one Purple Pearl, one Heishi, one Fuchsia Crystal, one
Heishi, and one White Pearl. Repeat 5 times, ending with one Purple
Pearl, one Circle Spacer, and one Purple Pearl.
Step 3. String a crimp bead, then loop
the SoftFlex through the small, round section on the other end of the clasp
and back through the crimp bead. Crush the crimp and trim the end.
Step 1. Onto a head pin place the following
A White Pearl, a Heishi, a Fuchsia Crystal, a
Heishi, and a Purple Pearl
Step 2. Using flat nose pliers, bend the
head pin 90°. Using wire cutters, cut off the excess head pin leaving
approximately 3/16". Carefully bend the 3/16" piece of wire into a loop,
but do not close it tight. Insert your French Hook Ear Wire into the loop
of your head pin and, now, close tightly so that there are no gaps.
Step 3. Repeat all the above steps for
the second earring. Enjoy!
