Create Earrings

1. Add 1 – Antique Gold 2x6mm 4-Leaf Bead Cap, 1 – Emerald 12x9mm Crystal Rondelle, 1 – Antique Gold 4x14mm 8-Leaf Bead Cap, 1 – Antique Gold 1.5x5mm Beaded Rondelle, 1 – Antique Gold 3x8mm Fancy Bead Cap, and 1 – Emerald Crystal Bicone to a Gold-Plated  headpin.  Make a 90° bend in headpin above beads.  Using round nose pliers (or any pliers you have) hold the headpin near the angle and bend it around the pliers to make a loop.  Wrap down around headpin creating as many coils as you can.  Trim any extra.  Your drop should look like this:

2. Open the loop of one of the leverback earrings (just twist it like you would a jump ring).  Add the loop of the drop and close the loop of the earring.  

3. Repeat steps 1 & 2 for the other earring.

You are finished!  This beading project is a great example of stacking multiple bead caps together to create an impressive pair of earrings.
