Step by step instructions

Start by using side cutters to cut two 5cm lengths from the 0.3mm sterling silver wire.

Thread your pearl beads through sterling silver wire and make a loop at the bottom of the bead with the round nose pliers.

Wrap the wire at the top of the bead onto a 5mm sterling silver jump ring and loop each pearl onto a textured connector link before closing the jump ring.

Finally attach sterling silver earwires to the connector links.

You could use different gemstone beads or pearl beads to create your own design.
