Hello, we’re going to make these lovely purple drop earrings today. I’m sure taking no longer than five to ten minutes and there is a little tricky part which is using the called calotte pair and I will show you how to do it quite easily and simply. You’re going to need about an 8 cm length of bead stringing wire and one of about 6 cm as well and three crimp beads, an earring finding, your calotte, and your purple heart.
So we are going to start, first of all by inserting the purple heart into the wire followed by a crimp bead, what I'm doing perfect turn around a little bit. Okay, twist the crimp bead to the end of the wire as close as you can, and then using your flat nose pliers you are just going to crimped that in place. And don’t worry too much if it is not right to the very end because you can just snip just on the top like so. So that’s all.
We are just going to do exactly the same with the other one. These crimp beads are so tiny. Okay, that one is pretty good. Now, take both end, what we are going to do is to get the calotte and thread both ends to this tiny, tiny hole underneath here. Now, best to do one at a time, as you can when you get one through there just to go through. Well, I have it go.
Now we are going to put another crimp bead on the end here, not to fit in it self trying to get one of those tiny, tiny crimp beads on two threads but it can be done. And there you go, that was quite quick for me actually, this will take for a while. So, crimped that together, move the calotte up, as you can see now you are going to try and get the crimp end in the calotte. You might want to start by bending it with your fingers and then finish of with the pliers to close, there you go. These are not finished, look and then simply touch that to your earring findings and close that with flat nose pliers, and there you have it.
