Step 13: At this point we need to connect the third tier of the
earrings. Using the same approach that you did in step 11, use
wrapped bead links to connect the loops made on pegs 2 and 4 of the middle
wire component to the outside loops in the small wire component.
This will require 22 gauge wire and 4mm beads.
Step 14: Using head pins and 4mm beads, connect bead dangles to the two outside loops in the small wire component.
Step 15: Using a head pin and a 6mm bead, connect a bead dangle to the middle loop in the small wire component. (As an alternative, you could use a 4mm bead here.)
Step 16: Using a head pin and a 6mm bead, connect a bead dangle to the middle loop in the top wire component. Because of the limited room available here, you may not be able to use a wrapped loop here and may need to make an open loop bead dangle as shown here.
Step 17: Now we need to make a modified figure 8 connector if we are using style 1 of the top wire component. Use about 1 1/4" of 20 gauge wire as described here.
Step 18: Once the modified figure 8 connector is completed, use it to connect the middle loop in the top wire component to your ear wire finding. If you are using style 2 for the top wire component, you can connect the loop in the ear wire finding directly to the middle loop in the top wire component.
Step 19: Use the same technique to make your second earring.
