Double Beaded Dangly Earrings Tutorial

Today I'll show you how to make the double beaded version of the Dangly Earring.
Same as yesterday, you will need:
Jump Rings
Beads size 6  (not every bead will fit.  Some are too fat to go around the curve of the jump ring)
French Hooks
Needle nosed pliers

This time we are going to start with two beads on the first ring.  From then on, it will be bead: ring: bead.  The beads are not small enough to slip through the space in the rings, so you need to make sure you alternate.
Go on until you have as many links as you would like.  I did twelve.  At the end, I like to turn my 'chain' into a 'ring'.  You will take your last jump ring and thread bead: ring: bead: ring.  Be careful.  That last jump ring will be full.
It should look like this when its all put together.  Add your french hooks and you're good to go!

I use hemostats

I use "mosquito" hemostats as they clamp onto the jump ring. Available on Amazon or FM <$10.00

I have tried to use the hemostats but find they are a bit hard on the fingers. My favorite is bent nose Baby Wubbers. You have two ways to hold them and one way is bound to work. The Baby ones are smaller for a smaller hand. the regular Wubbers are great too. It just depends on your hand size.

Then make yr jump rings according to the size of the dead beads you wanna use!! Thats awesome that u can pick whatever ones u want! 😊

My above comment was supposed to be attached to the ladies comment who is making her own dead beads...and it autocorrected to dead instead of sead so the whole thing makes no sense!!!

Jessica hargis said...

Just a note if this is your first adventure into jewelry making. There are lots of different jumpring materials, some very hard (steel) to soft (aluminum). If you have trouble opening and closing the jumprings, try a softer material. You can also use square nose pliers. Be sure you're using pliers with no texture on the surface to avoid marking up the jumprings as you open and close.
