Instructions

  1. Before you begin, watch the video: How to Make a Beaded Bead Using Right Angle Weave Double Needle Method.
  2. Following the instructions in the video, make two beaded beads using 2.5mm silver plated metal beads and two beaded beads using 2.5mm 22k gold plated metal beads.
  3. Cut two 1.5" and two 2" lengths of 22k gold plated figaro chain.
  4. Place a beaded bead onto a 1.5", 24 gauge 22k gold plated head pin, through two of the smaller holes across from each other, making sure that the head pin goes through the center of the bead. Create a simple wire loop after the beaded bead. Repeat with three more head pins and the rest of the beaded beads.
  5. Use the loops that you created to hang each silver plated bead from a 2" length of chain and each gold plated bead from a 1.5" length of chain.
  6. Open the loop at the base of a 22k gold plated French wire earring hook. Hang the end of one shorter chain with a bead and one longer chain with a bead from the loop and close it back up. Repeat with a second earring hook and the other two chains with beads.
