End of Materials List
Step 1
Using flush-cutters cut a 30-inch length of silver plated Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire. String onto the wire one crimp tube, the loop on one earwire and one crimp tube.
Step 2
String onto the wire five sets of one gold-plated 2.5mm round bead and one Swarovski rose gold 4mm round pearl and one gold-plated 2.5mm round bead. Pass the wire back through the crimp tubes and earwire leaving one end of the wire approximately 1-inch long. Use a bead stopper to hold the end of the wire. Pull the wire until it forms a loop 1-1/2 inches in diameter.

String onto the wire five sets of one gold-plated 2.5mm round bead and one Swarovski rose gold 4mm round pearl and one gold-plated 2.5mm round bead and back through the crimp tubes and earwire. Pull the wire until it forms a loop 1-11/16 inches in diameter.

Repeat to create a total of five loops each with five sets of one gold-plated 2.5mm round bead and one Swarovski rose gold 4mm round pearl and one gold-plated 2.5mm round with each loop 3/16 inch in diameter larger than the previous loop.
Step 3
Place a small amount of adhesive inside the crimps (optional).

Using the crimping pliers, crimp each of the crimp tubes. Using flush-cutters, trim any excess wire from the both short ends.
Step 4
Using chain-nose pliers gently close a crimp cover over the two outside crimps.
Step 5
Repeat Steps 1 - 4 to create the second earring.
