Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Cut your desired length of beading wire. Slide one end through a lobster clasp & secure with a crimp tube/cover. Slide on the rainbow freshwater pearls & the Czech glass gold rounds. Finish by looping the end of the wire through a soldered jump ring and back down through a crimp tube. Clamp down on the crimp tube to secure & cover with a crimp cover.
Step 2:
Use the 24 gauge wire to make bead links with the rainbow freshwater pearls, midnight blue freshwater pearls, and the Czech glass aquamarine English cut beads. Continue making links until you've reached your desired length. Attach the links directly to a peacock freshwater pearl link, or use jump rings to attach the links.
Step 3:
Cut your desired length of beading wire. Slide one end through a lobster clasp & secure with a crimp tube/cover. Slide on the seed beads in the order shown in the picture. Finish by looping the end of the wire through a soldered jump ring and back down through a crimp tube. Clamp down on the crimp tube to secure & cover with a crimp cover.
Step 4:
Cut your desired length of beading wire. Slide one end through a lobster clasp & secure with a crimp tube/cover. Slide on the white freshwater pearls & a gold tube. Finish by looping the end of the wire through a soldered jump ring and back down through a crimp tube. Clamp down on the crimp tube to secure & cover with a crimp cover.

    Gorgeous ideas except there should also be available one loop pearl links for simple earring drops.
