By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Cut 1 foot of 28 gauge wire. Take 1 small amethyst briolette and wire wrap the briolette. Set it aside.
  2. Cut another 1 foot length of wire. Take 1 larger briolette and wire wrap it. Set it aside.
  3. Open a jump ring. Slide on the loop of the larger wire wrapped briolette. Close the jump ring.
  4. Slide the loop of the smaller briolette onto the earring hook, from the end of the hook toward the front so it sits in the crook. Then slide the jump ring holding the larger briolette onto the earring hook behind the smaller briolette.
  5. Enjoy your earrings!
