How to make drop earings with two wires ?

 

To make earrings using the drop with two wires technique, you have many options of the overall style and effect. You can create a long, shoulder-dusting look, or keep it simpler with a shorter design.
This method will show how to make earrings using a drop with two wires of different lengths. Having two drops the same length can look great as well, especially for smaller feature beads.
You can use clear or colored tiger-tail to make earrings as a drop with two wires.

 

Steps

 

1.Cut the tiger-tail into two 6 inch pieces using the cutting edge of the pliers.

2.Take one length of the tiger-tail, and fold it in half.

3. Use the flat end of the pliers to press the fold, making the bend of the wire as flat as possible.

4.Thread the earring hook on one side of the tiger-tail, until it rests in the fold.

5.Thread the crimp through both ends of the tiger-tail, and slide it up until it traps the earring hook at the bend.

6.Squash the crimp into place.

7.Put the first bead onto either one of the tiger-tail ends, and follow it with another bead and a crimp.

8.Squash the crimp at the end of the tiger-tail, as close to the edge as possible.

9. Repeat the steps for the other wire

10. Squash in place, and cut the excess tiger-tail.

11.Repeat on the other earring, ensuring that the second, smaller wire is the same size on each earring so that they are balanced.

 

The trick is to cut each wire so that the beads sit just above the beads on the last wire. That way your design will always look well composed, balanced and will sit well.
