Jewelry Making -- Infinity Beaded Earrings

Step 9:  Now, using your round nose pliers, grasp the horizontal wire segment from step 8 as close to the bend as possible, but on the horizontal side of the bend (see step 9a).  We are going to make a loop at this point.  Push the wire up and over the jaws of your round nose pliers (step 9b).  Reposition the wire so that you can complete the loop (step 9c).  Finally, push the wire tail to complete the loop.    When completed, the wire will appear as shown below, after Step 9.

Step 11:  Open the loop you just completed, using the techniques discussed in page 6 of our Beginners Jewelry Making Instructions, slide this opened loop through the loop in your ear wire finding and close the loop.  When finished the earring should appear as shown at right. 

Step 12:  Complete this jewelry making project by making a second earring using the same steps and you are done.  Make the second earring body a mirror image of the first by starting on the opposite peg of your WigJig.
