In this article, I’ll explain how you can make a pair of wedding earrings, using white pearls. You can create a pair of earrings that will remind you of that magical day forever.
List of Supplies:
Chain nose pliers
Round nose pliers
2 Fish hook ear wires
2 Eye pins
2 small white round pearls
2 large white round pearls
2 teardrop-shaped white pearls
Thread on the teardrop pearl onto the headpin.
To make a nice-sized loop, you will need to use about 1 cm of the wire of your headpin. If you have any more than this leftover after threading your bead on, trim off the excess wire using the cutting pliers, so that you can make the loop.
Using the chain nose pliers, bend the end of the pin to 90 degrees, as shown in the image.
Place the round nose pliers around the tip of the headpin. Press it tightly and roll it inwards towards your beads. Roll the loop into place so that the wire follows the natural curve of the pliers. Do not pull it or let go halfway through, since this can result in the loop being misshapen. Do not close the loop entirely, so that you can later connect it to the eye pin which has the round pearls.
Thread on the round pearls onto the eye pin and bend the end of the pin to 90 degrees, using the chain nose pliers.
To make a nice-sized loop, trim off the excess wire using the cutting pliers so that you can make the loop. Place the round nose pliers around the tip of the head pin and roll it inwards to form the loop. Again leave the loop open, so that you can attach the fish hook ear wire.
Attach the open loop of the headpin to the eye pin.
Using the round nose pliers, close the headpin loop. When you’ve finished, your loop should rest against the last bead you threaded on.
Now the two pins are attached.
Attach the fish hook ear wire to the open eye pin loop.
Use the round nose pliers to close the eye pin loop.
Once the fish hook ear wire is attached, the first earring is ready. Now follow the same steps for the second earring.
Time to show off your super cute white pearl wedding earrings!
