How To Make Flower And Pearl Earrings
2 Gold and rhinestone flower connectors
2 Gold ball headpins
2 Gold earring wires
1. Start by sliding a pearl onto a headpin.
2. Next make a wrapped loop in the headpin attaching the pearl to the bottom of the flower connector. To do this, grasp the headpin above the pearl with the tip of the round-nose pliers and bend the wire towards yourself 90 degrees.
Reposition the round-nose pliers on top of the wire, just above the 90-degree turn. Wrap the end of the headpin over the top jaw of the pliers to start a loop. Reposition the bottom jaw of the round-nose pliers into the partial loop. Bend the wire the rest of the way around to make a complete loop.
Slide the loop through the bottom loop of the flower connector.
Then close the loop by grasping it across the loop with pliers and wrapping the tail around the headpin two times. Trim with the wire cutters.
3. Open the earring wire and slide the flower connector on. Close the earring wire.
4. Repeat to make the second earring.
