Step-by-Step Instructions:

  Step 1:
Cut a 4" piece of wire, slide on the faceted rondelle and the large flat coin bead. Create a loop at the top with your pliers, wrap the excess wire around the base of the loop tightly. Trim any excess wire. Do the same to the wire at the bottom of the bead, make the loop a little larger so you can hang three of your bead charms from it. Follow the tip below for help creating a loop.
Step 2:
Create 6 beads charms with the faceted rondelles. Follow the tip below for guidance. Hang these charms onto the bottom loop with the jump rings. Attach your ear wire and done!

    Andrea, I’ve enjoyed all your recent postings & ideas for using the new African beads. Love these big coin discs and think they make great earrings. The dangles on the bottom are the perfect touch for finishing them off. :)
