Circles Beaded Earrings Jewelry Making Project with Crystal AB BeadsCircles Beaded Earrings Jewelry Making Project with Crystal AB Beads

What would you call earrings made with four circles of wire?  We call them Beaded Circles Earrings.  This is a beginner's jewelry making project.  To make the circles wire component we use four Super Pegs and one regular metal peg.  The four Super Pegs are 3/16", 5/16", 7/16" and 1/2" sizes.  These four Super Pegs can be purchased as part of our set of six Small Round Super Pegs, item 0121 or 0122 in our Internet store. 

For our beginner's, please note that it is very important to make each new wire component out of inexpensive practice wire several times before you cut your good wire.  In making this new wire component, we made this piece three times out of practice wire. 

Because this wire component is rounded and not angular, it is a good example of a component that is easier to make using soft wire as opposed to 1/2 hard wire. 

Our instructions for making these earrings begin on the following web page.  In the future we will add to these instructions with instructions for making the "Circles" wire component as a centerpiece for a necklace.
