Hi, today we’re going to make these lovely floating bead earrings and with amethyst tumble chips which is quite cheap to buy and the materials that we need as well just some tiger tail, some crimp chips, some jump ring and some earrings finding, so here we go.
So how we’re going to do is that we’re going to stretch on each and tie it up to enough length and the tumble chip and then we’re going to crimp it on the verge on the first on that. We’ll do the second one. So first of all, we take the tumble chip then the crimp chip. And make sure crimp chips at the end and tack those pliers and put in place which you can see that stick all a little bit less looking out switch this thing to trim off. Here we go and that one is already done.
So, you can see how easy, if I can do it anybody can do it. Crimp chip there then the crimp chip again the tips close to the edges as you can. This much is too much as you’ve seen before so you don’t always trim the end. We’re all over the shop today and just trim in like that, then what we’re going to do is we’re going to attach all three lengths together. And I think that’s a little bit tricky. Just make sure they are in order so longest needle and the end one there of the wire at the top. Now all three strings here need to go through one tiny crimp tube, there we go. Again, get your flat nose pliers and the crimp tubes in place. Good, squeeze, there we go. Then we need to attach this to our earring finding that one is already got original earring guns so that was okay.
And we need to open our jump ring. Okay, pliers on in one side, one on the other and twist and then close and there we go. And the crimp chip just fits in the jump ring there to make it okay. There we go, as easy as one-two-three.
