Retired - Tiger Striped Earrings

PROJECT E009
Designer: Amanda Nistor
Skill Level: Beginner
Bring out your wild side with these great tiger striped earrings!
Instructions
  1. To the hole on the earring stud, add a 4mm jump ring.
  2. To the tiger striped donut bead, add two 7mm jump rings.
  3. Attach one of those jump rings to the 4mm jump ring on the earring stud.
  4. To make the briolette bail, cut a piece of the 24 gauge craft wire about 4 inches long, and insert through the hole on the briolette.
  5. Using chain-nose pliers, bend each side of the craft wire upward toward the middle of the briolette.
  6. When the wire is in the middle of the top of the briolette, bend one side of the wire so that it is pointing straight up.
  7. Wrap the other side of the wire twice around the bent side of the wire. Cut excess using a pair of flush cutter pliers.
  8. On the remaining wire, create a loop with your round nose pliers, about 1/8" from the already wrapped wire.
  9. After you have created a nice loop, wrap the remaining wire around itself until it meets up with the other wrapped wire. Trim excess.
  10. To the 7mm jump ring not containing the earring post, add your wrapped briolette bail
