I thought I’d post a tutorial for these earrings. They were a little fiddly, but fun to make.
Supplies you need:
Tools you need:
First, twist your headpin around the round nose pliers to make what would resemble a tentacle! You’ll have three lengths, one short, one medium and one longer.
This is what it looks like after you twist it a couple of times. Make sure you make the end at a 90 degree angle – this will help when you put the daisy spacer bead on the wires.
Do the second short headpin in the same way, and compare them to make sure they are relatively the same.
Finish all the headpins, making sure that the pairs are about equal in size.
Next, you’ll start putting the headpins in the opening of the daisy spacer. This is where it might get a little fiddly.
Just work the headpins through the hole and make sure the daisy spacer will stay and not slip through the headpins. You’ll just have to work through this a little!
Then add your disc bead and the second daisy spacer. You can adjust the tentacles after you finish your wrapped loop.
When you’re done with the wrapped loop, use your wire cutter to cut the excess wire as closely as you can. You may need to use your chain nose pliers to push the wires in, and make sure there are no sharp ends sticking out.
And there you have your finished earring. Make the other one, and you have a pair! These don’t have to be earrings either, you can make one and use it as a pendant on a cool ocean themed necklace!
