Use the narrow end of Soft Flex Professional Round Nose Pliers to form a simple loop at one end of the wire. Move the pliers 1/2 an inch away from the simple loop. Using the wide end of the pliers, wrap the wire in the opposite direction as the simple loop. Repeat entire step to form a second ear wire.
Step 2: Use 3 inches of wire to form a wire wrapped loop that attaches to one ear wire. String 1 Fire Polished Bead, 1 bead cap, 1 German Glass bead, 1 bead cap, and 1 Fire Polished Bead. Form a wire wrapped loop.
Step 3: Use 2 inches of wire to form a wire wrapped loop that attaches to the previous wire wrapped loop. String 1 bead cap, and 1 German Glass bead. Use Chain Nose Pliers to curl the end of the Soft Flex® Craft Wire and secure the bead.
