Hi, this is Julie with and today I'm gonna show you how to make Talia earring. This is actually a complete kit from and I want to show you how to make it so I've already used half the ingredients in the kit to make the first earring and then I'll show you how to do it with the other half. So this is a large hole pandora style bead. This is a faceted glass Czech glass bead there are two bead aligners, actually in the kit there's going be four but I already used two on in the first earring that I made you've got these small little bead caps, a couple little bicone beads, a head pin, and an earring hook. In terms of the tools that you are going to need is a pair a chain nose pliers, a round nose pliers and a cutter. So to make this it's actually quite easy to do. Take one of your small bead caps and place it onto the head pin in the upward direction then add a bicone, a bead aligner facing up your large hole bead another bead aligner, that keeps that in place there another bicone and finally one more bead cap. So you just sandwiched all those pieces together and now you need to secure them. To do that we're going to make a wrapped wire loop so right about your last bead cap go ahead and grip your wire with your chain nose pliers, bend the wire at a 90 degree angle, grab your round nose pliers and grab onto that wire and twist it over the top of the round nose pliers reposition your pliers so that you're gripping it from the top and continue making your loop so you got that right now so now we need to make our wrappings. To do so you're gonna grab the of top your loop with your chain nose pliers you can use another pair a chain nose, a round nose or I actually like to just use my fingers to do the wrapping on the backside go ahead and trim off your excess wire now point this in a direction where it's not going to go flying at someone or actually you can just put your finger over that little nub and trap it there now you want to secure our wrappings and make them a little bit more neat and tidy so we're gonna take our chain nose squish that rough wire end down look at it from the front if you need to you can also grab your wire press it, tighten it up a little bit now we need to add the earring hook to do so open up the base loop of the ring hook slip your wire loop over it and twist it back. You don't want to pull it out of shape or twist it and you've made the Talia earring set. Go to to purchase beading supplies and to get design ideas!
