TierraCast Luna Moth Earrings Tutorial
Created by: TierraCast
Cut a 6" piece of fine beading wire. String one hex spacer and a size 1 crimp bead onto both ends, forming a 1/4" loop at the center of the wire (this will be the top loop on the earrings). Flatten crimp bead with chain-nose pliers, making sure wires are not criss-crossed. Use Sharpie to make a tiny mark 3/4 - 1" from crimp on both wire ends. String 3-5 beads and spacers as desired onto one end, then one crimp bead. Thread end through loop at tip of wing, then back through crimp. Adjust to form a 3/16" loop with bottom edge at pen mark. Crimp to secure. Trim excess. Repeat on other side.
String one or more beads and bead caps onto head pins and form simple loops at the top of each. Attach at bottom of link. For step-by-step looping instructions, see Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF).
Have fun and play with design options! You can use gemstone or glass beads, and your choice of bead cap -- including enameling your own raw copper bead cap, or purchasing one from C-Koop or your favorite enamel artist.
