Making the Matching Earrings

Step 1: Thread the wire through one side of the picture frame bead, and then put the accent beads on. 

Step 2: Once the accent beads are on the wire, thread the wire through the other side of the picture frame bead.  I would recommend using your flat nose pliers to pull the wire through.

Step 3: Bend your wire at a 90 degree angle on both sides of your picture frame bead and cut to approx. 1/2 inch

Step 4: Create wire wrapped loops on both sides of the picture frame bead.  See our pendant making article for more detailed instructions.

Step 5: Add earwire to loop at top of picture frame bead and accent bead to loop at bottom of picture frame bead.
