String the following onto one silver-plated 2-inch headpin:
  • One Swarovski indicolite 3mm bicone
  • Three Swarovski dark lapis 3mm round pearls
  • One antiqued pewter 21x6mm dragonfly bead
  • One Swarovski Capri blue AB 4mm round
STEP 2
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers, round-nose pliers and flush-cutters form a wrapped loop on the straight end of the wire approximately 1/8 inch from last bead.
STEP 3
Gently curve the loop end "tail" of the dragonfly to and approximately 35-degree angle.

Using a pair of chain-nose pliers, round-nose pliers and flush-cutters form a wrapped loop on the straight end of the wire creating a dragonfly drop.
STEP 4
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, open the loop on one leverback earwire. Pass the loop through the wrapped loop on the dragonfly drop. Close the loop.
STEP 5
Repeat Steps 1 - 4 to create a second earring curving the tail of the dragonfly in the opposite direction creating a mirror image of the first drop.
