A few weeks back we shared to you how to make a Grape Pendant Jewelry.Today, we’re going to make another fruit jewelry, the Cherry Dangling Earrings!
This is a fun wire jewellery project for beginners. Learn how to make a Cherry Dangling Earrings by making loops and curves. Simple the steps may seem but the techniques you’ll learn will be useful and helpful in creating wire jewellery in the future.
Cut 1 x 14cm (5.5 inches) 0.8mm (20ga) wire.
With your round nose pliers grip the wire at the center. Bend both wires crossing each other to make a loop.
Aim to approximately have the loop at 0.5cm in diameter.
Holding the wire like a “V” shape with a loop at the bottom, continue to create a 2nd loop with the left wire like shown in this picture.
To make the 2nd loop, wrap the left wire onto the round nose pliers by bring the extended wire in clockwise direction.
You have formed 2 loops opposite each other.
With the extended wire from the 2nd loop, make a bend at the end of the wire.
Slide in your 6mm round bead. Using your thumb and point finger, carefully wrap the wire onto the bead going inward or counter-clockwise direction.
Make a 3rd loop with the right wire.
To make the 3rd loop, wrap the wire onto the round nose pliers in counter-clockwise direction.
After making the loop this is how it should look like.
Step 5: Wrap the bead again, but this time wrapping in clockwise direction.
Open up 2 jump ring and hook a jump ring into each loop.
Open up a 3rd jump ring and hook the 2 jump rings, together with your ear wire.
Pick up a head pin or T-pin and slide in 1 round bead.
Bend the wire 90 degrees like shown in this picture.
Make a loop with your round nose pliers.
Open up one more jump ring and attach into the loop. Then attach the jump ring to the very 1st loop you created.
