I'm sure there's more than enough tutorials around here about how to do things like this, so I'm not going to bother..  However if you do want to know just let me know & I'll see what I can come up with..















Cheers..

Very basically you need..

4 lengths of Tiger Tail / wire (I usally make one a bit shorter than the other to give different lengths)
1 pair earring things (sorry my brains working very slowly today)
2 large crimps
4 or more smaller crimps depending on how you want your beads on the wire
Various beads
Pilers & Wire cutters

Stuff you'll need
[/color][/size]


Take 2 different lengths of tiger tail / wire, thread through the earring piece loop, bend in half, slide large crimp up over four ends of wire & take almost to top of wire (eg. close to earring piece), squish crimp into place.

Threading earring piece onto tigertail

Fold in half, thread all ends of Tiger tail through crimp
[/color][/size]


Slide crimp up to top & squish into place with pilers
[/color][/size]


Thread your various beads on into desired design & use small crimps to finish off..

Using smaller crimp to secure beads in place

That's about it really..  You've got a nice set of earrings!!

Ta-DA!!

I'm making these all the time so if you'd like me to do a picture tut next time let me know..

I dont think I'd need a picture tute, but I'd love it if you could explain the green bracelet. I cant really see much detail, although if I could, I'm sure I could figure it out....All to say that I love everything and basically.....yeah...it's awesome.

Ok, making some tonight, so will do a pic tut..

The Green bracelet is just a heap of seed  / bugles beads etc, etc made into individual strands on beading elastic & they're just all in a pile..  Make sense..  There's about 10 or so seperate strans there..
