Retired - Fruit Loops Earrings

PROJECT E159
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Intermediate
A virtual rainbow of seed beads converge in a series of interlocking loops in these bright and cheery ear ornaments.
Instructions
  1. Remember to double all of the instructions to make both earrings. Open a jump ring and thread it through the loop on the earring hook. Thread another jump ring through the first, and close the first jump ring once again.
  2. Cut three pieces of Soft Flex at three inches long each, and two pieces of Soft Flex at four inches long each.
  3. Thread one of the four-inch pieces of wire with three inches of the seed bead mix and a crimp tube, but do not crimp yet.
  4. Thread the other end of the wire through the crimp tube and pull tight, creating a loop. Crimp the tube and trim off excess wire.
  5. Thread one of the three-inch pieces of wire with two inches of the seed bead mix and a crimp tube, but do not crimp yet.
  6. Thread the other end of the wire through the crimp tube and pull tight, creating a loop. Crimp the tube and trim off excess wire.
  7. Open the jump ring at the bottom of the earring hook and thread both beaded loops onto in. Close jump ring again.
  8. Thread another one of the three inch pieces of wire with two inches of seed beads and an un-crimped tube.
  9. Thread this strand through the larger dangling loop and back through the tube, pulling tight and crimping the tube. Trim off excess wire.
  10. Create two more loops, one small and one large. Thread both through the last small dangling loop and back through crimp tubes. Crimp tubes and trim off excess wire.
