Cut the ball end off two of the head pins and make a simple loop at one end.
Add bead caps and fired agate beads and finish with a wrapped loop.
Add all black stone beads onto the remaining head pins. Use either a simple loop or wire-wrapped loop to secure stones on the head pins.
Assemble earrings using oval jump rings.
Each jump ring should have two head pins with the exception of the bottom jump ring; it receives only one head pin.
Attach the ear wires to the top, and pinch closed using round nose pliers.
One or more parts (or tools) used in this project are no longer available, so we've moved the whole project into the "Misc Jewelry Tutorials with Issues" area while we decide what we want to do about it: find a good sub, re-make this project, or retire the tutorial.
