10 flat shell disks
2 earring loops
2x 5mm beads
10 eye pins
These earrings are simple to make all you need to know is how to loop the wire. It takes practice but with time you will be able to loop your wires fast and precise.
And this project is a great way to get started.
Attach each of the shell disks to an eye pin.
Take a shell and the inserted eye pin and using your pliers begin to create a loop. Before closing the loop add another shell and eye pin then close the 1st pin.
You will now have 2 shells with the 1st pin closed around the second pin and the second shell with an open pin ready to loop around the 3rd shell.
Take the second pin (which is now attached to two shells ) and repeat the process until you get to the last shell add the final small bead and then secure the last loop around the earring loop.
Once the loops are all tight the earrings are secure enough to wear.
This is a great way to cascade your beads for long dangling earrings.
