DIRECTIONS:

BLUE EARRINGS:

  1. String selected beads on the headpins for the middle dangler. Refer to photo.
  2. Use round-nose pliers to grasp the wire just above the beads and bend sharply away from you at about a 45 degree angle.
  3. Pivot pliers from a horizontal to vertical position. (Fig. 1, back page of PDF)
  4. Wrap the wire across the top jaw of the pliers. (Fig. 2, back page of PDF)
  5. Move the piece to the bottom jaw of the pliers and continue to bend underneath jaw to complete the circle (Fig. 3, back page of PDF)
  6. Cut the wire so that only a loop remains. Attach all to chandelier circle forms. Straighten and close loop with flat-nose pliers.
  7. Open and place beads on the 4mm sterling jump rings.
  8. Loop the jump rings with beads through each of the loops at the bottom of the chandelier circle form and close tightly using flat-nose pliers.
  9. Bend open the loop of each ear wire with your pliers, and attach chandelier circle forms to the headpin loops. Important: The proper way to open the ear wire loop is to twist it open, side to side. Use the jump ring finger tool to make this job easier!
  10. Close the ear wire loops securely.
