Step one

Take the 45cm length of wire and with the round nose pliers make a small loop at one end.


Step two

Snip the very end of the loop and re curl, this will make a neater coil. Using the nylon coated pliers form a coil, going round 5 times.


Step three

Hold the one side of the coil with the nylon coated pliers, bring the end of the wire up through the center hole of the coil.


Step four

Take one gemstone from each of the gemstone strands. Thread on the four gemstones, largest to smallest. Make a wrapped loop at the top with the round nose pliers.


Step five

Take the wire and bring it diagonally down and wrap around between the 1st and 2nd gem.


Step six

Wrap the next 2 gemstones.


Step seven

Wrap the last gemstone and bring the wire under the coil then trim.


Step 8

To complete the earings attach the shepherd hoop ear wires.
