Step 23: At this point you have completed the Queen of Clubs earring dangle. Your wire component should appear as shown at right. The only thing that remains to be done is to connect that wire component to your commercial ear wire as shown at left. The way that this is done is to open the loop in the top of the Queen of Clubs earring dangle, or the loop in the bottom of your commercial ear wire and connect the two wire components, then close the loop. Opening and closing loops is done using your bent chain nose pliers to grasp one side of the loop you want to open then twisting the loop open. You don't want to try to pull the loop open by pulling the loop to increase the size of the gap. This will distort the loop so that it won't be round. Instead you grasp one side of the loop as shown at right and twist up to open, then twist down to close. You can view pictures of how to open and close loops here.
Make two earrings using the same steps and you are done. Now you need to find interesting beads so that you can make several pairs of the Queen of Clubs Wire & Beads Earrings.
In the following two web pages, we will abbreviate these instructions. These abbreviated instructions may be just the thing to use as class notes, or to print and sit by your work space when you are making these earrings.
