Basic Skills Necessary:
With this lesson I'll teach you how to create this simply shiny pair of earrings, using two beads/spheres, silver plated wire and metallic beads. Any jewelry crafter has at least two beads around to create these earrings if wanted.
With 13 pictures and seven steps, spread along 5 pages, creating this pair of earrings would not be a problem at all.

- MATERIAL LIST: 2 pieces of 30 cm of 0.6 mm silver plated wire; 2 pieces of 3 m of 0.3 mm silver plated wire; ear wires; 24-26 pieces of metallic beads; two pieces of howlit spheres (or any other bead you want)
- TOOL LIST: flat nose pliers; round nose pliers; wire scissors; wire cutter
- ALTERNATIVE MATERIALS: As I said in the material list, spheres can be replaced with any sphere/bead at hand, any color you like. Metallic beads too, can be replaced (with seed beads), or not added at all, your choice. You can use silver plated wire, as I did, or you can use copper or sterling silver one. Of course, they'd look gorgeous with oxidized wire, too.
