Tip: If you're new to wire wrapping, give yourself extra time and extra wire. Start over with new wire if your wire gets too bent out of shape.

Time to create: 1-2 hours

Instructions:
1. Cut a 12" piece of wire.
2. Hold a short tail of the wire against the top of the chandelier earring finding and wrap the long tail around the teardrop from the top down about a dozen times to hold the tail in place. Clip the short tail of the wire if it can be seen.
3. Wrap the wire once around the outline of the teardrop. String 1 6mm Czech glass round onto the wire and wrap once around the outline again. Repeat this step two more times, following the outline of the chandelier finding before the first loop.
4. Wrap once after the first loop. Slide a 6mm Czech glass round onto the wire and wrap again. Repeat this step one more time to place a bead between each of the three loops at the bottom of the chandelier finding.
5. Repeat step 3, following the shape of the teardrop and adding 3 more beads as you go.
6. Wrap what is left of the tail around the chandelier finding to secure the beads and trim excess wire.
7. Slide an 8mm opaque turquoise green Czech glass bead onto a ball pin. Attach it to the first loop with a wrapped loop. Repeat on the opposite side of the earring.
8. Slide a 10mm pink cloudy Czech glass bead onto a ball pin. Attach it to the center loop of the chandelier finding with a wrapped loop.
9. Open the loop of the ear wire and attach it to the top loop of the teardrop chandelier finding.
10. Repeat steps 1-9 to create the second earring.
