Alright, it’s earring making time! Let’s get started.

Simple Red Dangle Earrings

For this project you will need some kidney earring hooks, two eye pins, and two beads/crystals/pearls/etc. You will also need round nosed pliers, flat nosed pliers, and wire snips. All of these things can be found at a bead shop or large craft supply store.

Red Dangle Earrings-3

Begin by putting an eye pin through the bead of your choice. Use the round nosed pliers to grip a bit above the bead, and then gently push the wire to the side,as shown below.

Red Dangle Earrings-4

Bring the wire back over the top of the pliers, as shown below.

Red Dangle Earrings-5

Grab the end of the eye pin with your flat nosed plier and wrap the wire back around the center of the eye pin wire a couple of times, as shown below.

Now use the wire snips to cut the excess end off of the eye pin.

Simply thread the kidney earring hook through the closed loop that you have just made and you are finished! Repeat with the second earring.
