Hi, this is Kat with beadaholique.com and we are so excited that we get to use Swarovski crystal and Swarovski crystal pearls so I want to just start by going over some of the color options that we have so like I said these are duos so we do have in silver we have the purple set we have a blue set and a beautiful pink now for gold we have a lovely green a pink and a very classic black so those are the six options that we have so today I'm actually going to be making the gold and green version so what you're gonna get when you purchase one of the kids from beadaholique is you'll get your two bead frames here that are the rectangles you'll get two circles you'll get your eye pins and your head pins here you'll also get a small pair of the kidney wires and a large pair of the kidney wires you'll get your coordinated by cones and as you can see for this design we've chosen a little hombre pattern you'll get your two classic cut pendants and two Swarovski pearls now the only tools that you're going to need to complete this kit is a pair of round nose pliers and a pair of cutters alright so we're going to start by making our rectangular frame pendant earrings so for these ones we're going to be using the rectangular pendants and we're gonna use these small kidney ear wires here and what's gonna happen is we're gonna leave those little pendants at the bottom and I'm just gonna kind of move these guys down here so you can just sort of see how we're gonna string them on there and we're just gonna do one at a time actually so let me kind of move that out of the way there we go and we're going to be using one of our eye pins so it has the little loop there at the bottom now because the pendant is a little bit larger we want to make sure that we use the eye pin going this direction so that we can really make that loop at the bottom as big as it needs to be to fit over pendant so the first thing that we're going to do is we're going to take our frame and it has this little hole at the top and the bottom so all you're going to do is just sort of thread your eye pin down through the center and now where that loop is at the bottom we're just going to add on our bicones starting with the lightest color so you add the first two light color and then we're going to add the medium and then we're gonna add our darkest color here alright so now we have them all kind of loaded up on our frame so what we're gonna do is I'm just gonna kind of lay those down there and very carefully I'm just gonna kind of pull my eye pin back and then just catch it in that second hole there so that they are officially all trapped in that little bead frame there just like so so now as you can see we're gonna be working down and we're gonna make that little loop going down alright so you can see that the bead frame the loop is facing perpendicular what we're gonna do is we're gonna make a loop that goes the opposite direction that way it'll lay really nicely on the ear so I'm actually gonna kind of hold it so that it's to the side there so that what I can do is I can take my round nose pliers and I'm just gonna sort of Bend that I pin backwards so you can just sort of see that it's now kind of cockeyed out this way and now what I want to do is I want to move a good distance up my round nose pliers and what I'm going to do is I'm just going to bend that wire up and over the top to get a nice large loop and I just rotated my pliers you can kind of see what we're working with there on the side and then I'm just going to bring it over and remove my pliers and now I'm gonna take my flush cutters there come in and just sort of snip that off and then I can take my round nose pliers here and all I'm gonna do is just bend that open slip on my pendant here and close that loop up just by giving it a nice little gentle twist just making sure it stays nice and secure all right so that is the first part there and then the last part is very simple we're just going to open that kidney wire and what we're gonna do is we're just gonna slip it on up and over so it comes to rest right in front so now you can see why we've done the loop the way we have there and then to where it just simply close up your earring so simply repeat this process to make the second earring so we've completed our first pair of earrings here at making a simple wire loop so let's move on to the second pair of earrings using a Swarovski pearl and we're going to make some wrapped wire loops so for this what we're gonna do is we're going to take one of our head pins and this is gonna be a little bit different because we kind of have to find the holes of both the pearl and the frame and kind of line them up there as best we can and then we're gonna kind of just wiggle it around until we can get our head pin going through there and we're gonna put it all the way through going through the bead and the bead frame there all right so just like the rings of Saturn so now we have our head pin and what we're gonna do we're gonna take our round nose pliers and we're gonna come up just a little bit just a hair from the bottom there and again we're gonna do that same sort of kickback motion just that rotation with our repped or I'm sorry our round nose pliers and now we're just gonna wrap it up and over the top and you can see that I'm much closer to the nose there it's because we can go ahead and do a smaller loop for this one so wrap it up and over the top now so far it's just like a simple wire loop so we're just going to bring it right across there and then we're going to take that tail and just wrap it around going all the way around there and we're gonna wrap it until we have two wraps that you can see right on the front there and then we're gonna come in with our cutters and just snip off that end there we go and I'm just gonna sort of adjust my little loop so it sits up nice and tight just like so so now we have a little wrapped wire loop there and just to go for something nice and long and elegant what we're gonna do is we're just gonna add that right to our little kidney wire and you could see that I went in the back way there and we are finished so I'm gonna do the same thing to repeat to make our second earring so by using basic tools we've learned how to do a simple wire loop and a wrapped wire loop to create two pairs of elegant earrings now these are featuring Swarovski crystals and Swarovski crystal pearls for that added luxury design I hope you enjoyed this video you can get all of these kits and even more exclusive
