Earrings with Swarovski Crystal Beads and Silver-Plated Tube Beads

STEP 1
Cut a 5-inch section of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire.
STEP 2
String one 2.5mm silver-plated crimp bead onto the very end of the wire and crimp the crimp bead. Place a 3mm silver-plated crimp cover over the crimp bead, add a dab of glue then gently close the crimp cover. The glue will assure a strong hold on this crimped end.
STEP 3
String one Swarovski 12mm wild heart bead and one 2.5mm silver-plated crimp bead onto the wire. Crimp the crimp bead and cover with a 3mm crimp cover.

Continue with this process stringing the following components:
  • One 15.5mm silver-plated curved tube bead
  • One 2.5mm crimp bead crimped with one 3mm silver-plated crimp cover
  • One Swarovski 12mm wild heart bead
  • One 2.5mm crimp bead crimped with one 3mm silver-plated crimp cover
  • One 15.5mm silver-plated curved tube bead
STEP 4
String onto the wire: one 2.5mm silver-plated crimp bead and one 4mm silver-plated Accu-Guard™ wire protector. Pass the wire back through the crimp bead, and pull the crimp tight against the Accu-Guard. Crimp the crimp bead and trim the excess wire. Cover the crimp bead with one 4mm silver-plated crimp cover.
STEP 5
Open the loop on a silver-plated fishhook earwire and attach it to the Accu-Guard. Close the loop.

Repeat Steps 1 - 5 to create the second earring.
