3. Take one of the wire ends and tread it back through the crimp tube creating a small loop. This will be were the ear wire will be attached.

5.  For each wire end ( you should have at least 4) select between 4-8 beads and thread then on with a crimp tube between each bead. As you thread you can crimp the tube to stop the bead above it exactly where you want it to stay.

To create a organic look vary the spacing between each bead.sparkle fringe earrings-06

For this project we were inspired by the Fall season so used lots of warm browns, golds and greens and fiery oranges. We used copper crimp covers to tie it all together.  Remember: veriety is the spice of life so mix it up and use Firepolish Czech beads as well as Swarovski Bicones. Also, don’t forget to play with different sizes.
