I'm going to take one of your silver plated earring hooks and use a pair of chain nose pliers on the short end of the loop with the little ball bend that to the side open the loop hang your earring by the wrap wire loop and close the earring hook so there's your first snowman earring you'll just repeat with the second set of materials to make your second snowman I'll show your the christmas tree take a gold plated head pin if your head pins get a little bent just use your fingers to straighten them out place your cube bead onto the head pin and then you're going to just start with the largest size of the migrated beads and work to your smallest and these are AB finished so they do have this kind of reflective coating on one side so put that to the bottom one size smaller each time then place a little tiny red bicone bead on the top and then we're going to create another wrap wire loop to hold these in place just like we did with the snowman grip right above that last bead grab that with round nose pliers to bend around rotate and continued to complete the loop use the nose pliers to wrap until you reach the bead go ahead and trim off the rest tuck in the tail and then take one of your gold plated earring hook use your chain nose pliers to open up the loop hang your tree and close the loop that's gonna be your first christmas tree earring you'll just repeat that with your second set of supplies to make your second tree and I'm gonna show you how to make the little presents stack take your silver plated head pin put red cube bead on followed by one of the white cube beads one of the green cube beads then take the little bow and place that over the top you're gonna create another wrapped wire loop you need to be a little careful with the bow it can be a little tricky to get in there rotate the bow as necessary I'll start by going to the side with the bow kind of at an angle to keep it out of the way so grip right above the last bead and bend the top grab it with a round nose pliers right above the bend and around take the plier and continue the bend You can see I'm just continuing to move that bow out of my way as I work use the chain nose pliers to wrap until we meet the bow bead at the base keep rotating it out of the way as you work trim the tail off tuck in the end then you can straighten everything out once you're done with your loop I'm going to take the silver plated earring hook open it up hang the earring close it up and that's how you make a little stack of gifts do the exact same thing for the second set of supplies for that and that's how you make the crystal christmas earring set Go to www.beadaholique.com to purchase beading supplies and to get design ideas!
