How to make jewelry with wire and beads?

Step 1: Make your bead into a perfect pendant

1st, slide 1 Non-Magnetic Hematite Bead and 5 Acrylic Rhinestone Beads onto a long headpin for preparation;

2nd, create a wrapped herringbone. Each time you form a wrapped coil push up one rhinestone bead.

3rd, fix the ending in place by wrapping several coils as you did at the start;

4th, do a simple loop at the top with the leftover pin part.

Step 2: Design the decorative dangles

Slide the 6mm Bicone Glass Bead onto a short headpin. Loop the rest of the pin. You may need 4~6 pieces for one earring.

Open a jumpring and feed the earring hook, the two decorative dangles, the wrapped herringbone pendant and the two other dangles. Close it off and this is one of the beaded earrings.
