Instructions
Remember to double these directions to make your matched pair of earrings.
  1. Onto a head pin, place 1 small bead cap facing upwards, 1 Swarovski crystal 4mm bicone in light siam, another small bead cap facing down, 1 Tierracast bead aligner with the post facing up, 1 Murano style glass lampwork large hole bead, another Tierracast bead aligner with the post facing down, another small bead cap facing upwards, 1 Swarovski crystal 4mm bicone in light siam, and finally 1 more small bead cap facing down.
  2. Create a wrapped wire loop after the last beadcap. Cut off excess wire with flush cutters.
  3. Open the loop at the base of your earring hook (the same way you would open a jump ring). Place into this open loop the wrapped wire loop you made in the previous step.
  4. Close the loop back up.
