The three wire components used to make the body of these earrings are shown at right.  We also need a modified figure 8 connector and an ear wire finding to complete these earrings.  Our instructions for making this jewelry item begin with the top wire component.  On page 3 we will provide the instructions for the 3 loop wire component and for how to connect the 3 loop component to the top wire component.  On page 4 we provide instructions for the 5 loop wire component and on page 6 we provide instructions for assembling the earrings including the modified figure 8 connector and the ear wire finding.
 
2 Tier Beaded Earrings Jewelry Making Project Wire Components
Step 1:  Cut and make a loop in one end of a piece of 20 gauge wire 2 inches long.  1/2 hard wire is preferred. 

Step 2:  Straighten this wire.

Step 3:  Place pegs 1 and 2 into your WigJig Cyclops or Centaur as shown at right.  Put the initial loop on peg 1 and wrap the wire around peg 2 1-3/4 times so that it rests against the hole where peg 3 would go.

Step 4:  Now add peg 3 and wrap the wire around this peg. 

Step 5:  Remove the wire from the jig and cut the excess wire.  Close the loop made around peg 3 with your bent chain nose pliers. 

Step 6:  Now using your round nose pliers convert both loops in the top wire component into "eye" loops as shown at the bottom here

Step 7:  Using your bent chain nose pliers, one at a time grasp the loops at the bottom of this wire component and twist them 90 degrees.  When completed it should appear as shown below, right.
