- One 3-inch length and one 6-inch length of natural copper 18-gauge round Zebra Wire™
- Seven 24-inch lengths of bright copper 28-gauge round Wrapit® wire
- Two 8-inch lengths of antiqued copper-plated 4.8x3.3mm cable chain
Form a simple loop on the end of one 6-inch length of Zebra Wire. Measure 1-1/2 inches from the loop and wrap the wire two times around the 3-inch wire at the bend of the L-shape. Gently curve the remaining length of wire into an arc. Form a simple loop on the opposite end of the wire.
Repeat on the 6-inch Zebra Wire until there are sixteen strands of seed beads on each side of the wire on the 1-1/2 inch portion and thirty-four strands of seed beads on each side on the 4-inch curved portion of the wire. Decrease the seed beads in number to graduate the leaf pattern.
Repeat to attach the second 8-inch length of cable chain to the toggle bar portion of the clasp and the loop on the right side of the 6-inch length of Zebra Wire.
Repeat Step 2 to create the second earring.
