Hi this is Megan with Beadaholique.com and I going to show you how to make these earrings which are the Wild at Heart earring kit earrings Here I have one completed and I'm going to show you how to make a second one you're going to need a pair of chain nose pliers a pair of round nose pliers and a flush cutter plier you also need two Swarovski wild heart beads and then a Swarovski bicone bead an earring hook, an eye pin and an head pin you will get all of those pieces in your kit and then you just need these little tools. So to start with go ahead and hang a heart wild bead on the eye pin go ahead and insert it in. You'll see the top of the eye pin loop does actually go up into the big hole a little bit that's fine we're just going to make a simple wire loop on top of the bead so you just grab the eye pin and use it to bend the wire about a forty five degree angle then use the round nose pliers to grab right about that bend and then bend the wire around you can rotate your pliers and you grab the other sides so you can complete that loop and then use your wire cutters to trim off the excess and then just straighten that out we're going to do the same thing with our head pin and our bicone bead the bicone bead is a crystal AB so it has an AB finish on one half put that AB finished half up so that you see a little a bit more I'm going to create another simple wire loop above the bead. Again you're going to grab your pliers Bend at a forty five degree angle use your round nose bring the wire around take the pliers and complete the loop and then just trim off the excess now I'm going to open the loop a little bit more and just put it through the bottom loop from your eye pin holding the bicone bead twist that close now we just need to hang our earring from the earring hook just uses your chain nose pliers to gently twist open the earring hook hang it by the top loop and twist it closed again and then you'll need to just repeat the process with your other materials to create your second earring for the set and that is how you create the Wild at Heart earrings Go to www.beadaholique.com to purchase beading supplies and to get design ideas!
