Simple Steps of Light Pendant Tutorial »
InstructionsI also adapted the pattern for earrings using same instructions except: skip the bail part, make a not quite 90 degree bend in the wire about 1.5-2 inches from one end (this will become the ear wire). Continue on with stringing and wiring beads adding swirls, etc, as desired. Shape end of wire into ear wire and file end smooth.
