Earrings with Swarovski Crystal Beads and Pearls, Sterling Silver Charms and Accu-Flex® Beading Wire

STEP 1
Place a small amount of Loctite® 409 Gel adhesive on the bottom of a sterling silver 11x6mm turtle dove charm. Press a Swarovski 4mm round coral pearl bead into the adhesive. Allow adhesive to set. Repeat to create a second turtle dove charm holding a coral pearl.
STEP 2
Using flush-cutters cut ten 3-inch lengths of tangerine Accu-Flex professional-quality beading wire.
STEP 3
Pass the ends of 5 strands of tangerine wire through a 3.5x3mm magic crimp. Insert a Magic Finding™ omega insert into the top of the Magic Finding crimp bead. Using the Magic Finding Crimp pliers, crimp the crimp tube. Using flush-cutters, trim the excess wire from the short end. Repeat to create a second set of wires attached to a Magic Finding crimp bead with Magic Finding omega insert.
STEP 4
String onto the first 3-inch length of tangerine beading wire one 4mm bicone fuchsia crystal and the first crimp on the 5-strand crimp end. Measure 1-1/8 inch down the wire from the top Magic Finding crimp bead and crimp the crimp tube using chain-nose pliers.

String onto the second 3-inch length of tangerine beading wire one 4mm bicone fuchsia crystal and the second crimp on the 5-strand crimp end. Measure 1-1/4 inch down the wire from the top Magic Finding crimp bead and crimp the crimp tube using chain-nose pliers.

String onto the third 3-inch length of tangerine beading wire one 4mm bicone fuchsia crystal and the third crimp on the 5-strand crimp end. Measure 1-inch down the wire from the top Magic Finding crimp bead and crimp the crimp tube using chain-nose pliers.

String onto the fourth 3-inch length of tangerine beading wire one 4mm bicone fuchsia crystal and the fourth crimp on the 5-strand crimp end. Measure 1-1/4 inch down the wire from the top Magic Finding crimp bead and crimp the crimp tube using chain-nose pliers.

String onto the fifth 3-inch length of tangerine beading wire one 4mm bicone fuchsia crystal and the fifth crimp on the 5-strand crimp end. Measure 1-1/8 inch down the wire from the top Magic Finding crimp bead and crimp the crimp tube using chain-nose pliers.

Cut the excess wire from under the crimp tubes.

Repeat to create a second beaded wire bird cage set.
STEP 5
Measure 1/4 inch down the second wire from the top Magic Finding crimp bead and place a small amount of Loctite 454 adhesive on the wire. Position the crystal on the adhesive to secure the crystal in place.

Repeat to secure the crystal 1/2 inch down the fourth wire.
STEP 6
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, open the loop on an earwire. Pass it through the loop of the Magic Finding omega finding attached to the first beaded wire bird cage. Close the loop.
STEP 7
Open a 4mm jumpring. Pass the jumpring through the loop on the bottom of the 5-strand crimp end and the top loop on a turtle dove charm. Close the jumpring.
