Instructions

Steps
Step 1
1. Use the round-nose pliers to create a small loop at the end of your wire. Wrap the wire around a bottle that is the same size you want the loop of your earrings to be.
Steps
Step 2
2. Shape the wire around the bottle as tight as possible, and use a piece of tape to hold wire of the circle in place. Give your wire a bit of texture, and harden it up, by hammering it on a steel block. If you don’t want texture, use a nylon or rubber mallet. Be careful not to flatten out your wire too much, or you beads could end up not fitting on the wire.

Step 3
3. Remove the tape, and slide 4 beads onto the wire. Now cut your embroidery thread for the tassels. Loop one of the 4-inch clumps of thread between two of the beads. Take the 10-inch piece of thread, double it, and wrap it around the tassel near the top of the loop. Wrap the long thread around the tassel a couple of times, and then knot the ends together.

Step 4
4. Hide the ends of the thread by using a needle to thread them back down through the top of the tassel. Repeat two more times to make two more tassels on this earring. Trim the ends of the tassels so they’re the same even length.

Step 5
5. Make another loop on the other end of the wire. You may need to trim it first, depending on how much overlap you left when you cut the wire. Put a jumpring through both wire loops, and use it to attach an earring hook.
