These earrings are a great project for beginners! The only technique to master is how to make a simple wire loop.
  1. To make this earring, take a head pin and place beads in the following order onto it: 1 cube bead, 1 daisy spacer, 1 large olive bead, 1 daisy spacer, 1 medium olive bead, 1 daisy spacer, 1 small olive bead, and finally 1 bicone.
  2. After the last bead, create a simple wire loop and trim your tail.
  3. Open the loop at the base of the earring hook, the same way you would open a jump ring, and slip it onto the simple wire loop. Close the loop back up.
  4. Now create the second earring in the same way you made the first. Happy Holidays!
