Designer Tips

  • Select your beads and arrange a nice pattern around the earring hoop.
  • Wrap wire a few times around the hoop, add a bead, wrap 3 times, add another bead, wrap 3 times...
  • Keep the number of coils between beads the same for consistent spacing.
  • After the last bead, wrap the rest of the wire around the hoop until you reach the end.
