Cut the 12-inch piece of wire into four 3-inch pieces. Approximately 3mm from the end of each piece of wire, use chain-nose pliers to fold up a bend. Note: Using this technique you will create headpins.
Using two pieces of wire from Step 1, slide on one Swarovski sew-on stone art. 3700 10mm jet, one fancy stone art. 4139 14mm jet, one sew-on stone art. 3700 10mm sun and one bead art. 5540 12mm jet.
Keep the two wires apart; on one wire slide on one bead art. 5328 4mm jet. On the second wire, slide three beads art. 5328 3mm jet and two beads art. 5328 2.5mm jet. Cut the wire 10mm from the last bead art. 5328 2.5mm jet. Using round-nose pliers, turn a loop towards the bead art. 5328 2.5mm jet--at least 1.5 - 2 rotations.
Using the second wire that has the bead art. 5328 4mm jet on it; turn a loop and then wrap the wire around the bead art. 5328 4mm jet and create a wire wrap between the bead art. 5328 4mm jet and the bead art. 5540 12mm jet. Trim tail and tuck next to coil made.
Attach one bead art. 5328 4mm jet to a blank earwire. Turn a simple loop. Open loop and attach to the loop from Step 4.
Repeat Steps 2 - 5 for the second earring.
OPTIONAL: Cut the 6-inch piece of wire into two equal pieces. Wire wrap bead art. 5714 8mm jet and attach to the coiled loop made at the end of the bead art. 5328 2.5mm jet. Repeat for the second earring.
Shape the point of the hat by gently curving the wire (see picture).
