This is a beginners jewelry project.  The earrings that are made are chandelier earrings and can be made with almost any type of beads.  The beads shown at right are Swarovski 6mm emerald bicone beads. 

In the earrings shown at right, the finished earring was "decorated" by wrapping fine gauge wire to in effect glue or solder some components in place.  This technique is slightly more advanced and is not required to finish these earrings.   

The instructions on pages 2 through 6 show how to make these earrings on the WigJig Cyclops.  The pattern for these earrings on the WigJig Delphi or Olympus/Olympus-Lite is shown on page 7.
