Amethyst Chip Bead & Silver Bead Earrings

Amethyst Chip Bead & Silver Bead Earrings

These beautiful amethyst chip bead and silver bead earrings are perfect if you want a colourful modern design. These chip beads are a beautiful deep shade of purple which compliment the silver beads perfectly.

Step By Step Instructions

1. To start, thread one silver bead onto the headpin.

2. Thread the amethyst chip beads onto the headpin to the desired length.

3. Thread a silver bead onto the headpin at the end of the chip beads.

4. Using round nose pliers create a loop with the headpin at the end of the beads. Before closing the loop with snipe or flat nose pliers, thread on the hoop of the earwire. Cut off the excess wire and use the round nose pliers to neaten the loop if needed.

5. Repeat the process to create the second earring.
