How to make the seed bead fringe earrings?
Step 1: Make a Chandelier component with two types of copper wire
1st, take the 0.8mm wire, clamp the one end and wrap 7 loop against the pliers in same directions. Trim off the excess wire. 2 pieces are required;
2nd, wrap the 0.5mm copper wire around the top half of 7 loops;
3rd, bring the wire back to center (the 4th loop) and make a wrapped loop over it. Keep wrapping the second time to the other end of chandelier component. Do the same to the other piece.

2nd, slide one 3mm round seed bead;
3rd, make a wrapped loop by using the pliers. Remove the excess wire;
4th, pass the starting 3cm part of wire through the previous loop. Then make a wrapped loop as did at the beginning;
5th, slide one 3mm round seed bead;
6th, make a wrapped loop against the pliers. Remove the excess wire;
