Hi, this is Kat with deeds and they just have a nice little swing to them and if you can look these have a nice low profile so I do have some other variations here of those beads and I have these beautiful Siam and golden shadow and a very traditional red emerald and crystal again that's the same as well and then we have some Siam and crystal and this has a little bit more of a red backing to it we also have the golden shadow and Sapphire so you kind of get that really beautiful snowflake and this is just another example of use this is more traditional by putting them on a bracelet but I wanted to show a different variety today by using them with earrings now I just want to pick up this little one and this guy here so you can see that there are two different sizes and they both have the same size hole but their profile is a little bit different so depending on what you're gonna be doing just be aware of that as well for which variety you choose so let's go ahead and we're gonna jump in and we're gonna make this very simple pair of holiday earrings now I'm gonna be using a pair of chain nose pliers a pair of flush cutters and a wire looping plier and I just have a little bit of blue tape on there just to protect my wire I have a 21 gauge inch and a half I pin here I have about two inches of gen-y chain and this chain is really great because we do sell it by the inch so you can get the exact amount that you need so you're not left over with extra inches of chain which is a really great thing especially when you're making earrings I have a six millimeter Siam bicone and a nice elegant long silver ear wire so very simply I'm just gonna take that I pin string on my bike oh and now I'm gonna make a simple wire loop using my way looping pliers so just make sure to scoot that all the way down towards the bottom go ahead and Bend that over and just move your pliers and wrap it around and now simply take your flush cutters and you're going to cut that loop and set that aside so now I'm going to take my chain nose pliers and just open that loop up just a little bit more and what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna slip on one end of that chain I'm going to thread on my be charmed bead there we go and now I'm just gonna take that chain and it's sort of rotate that in my fingers just so I can get it in there and get that chain on there you know I'm having trouble holding it so I'm actually gonna take my pliers and just sort of hold that little loop at the top so I can get my chain on because this is very delicate there we go nice little trick if you're having your fingers that are slipping and now I'm just gonna close that loop up so this is what I have and now I'm just going to open the loop on the other side slip on that earring finding and close that loop up it's so simple and so easy but they make a really nice elegant pair of earrings and I love how thin the beads are they just kind of look just really nice and they're just very fun and festive I hope you enjoyed this video you can find all of these supplies and many more tutorials at you
