Accessorizing in construction

Today I dusted off my jewelry making tools.  My intentions were to fix a pair of earrings that had come apart. My mind started to race.  I began to get excited just feeling the tools in my hands again.  I dug out some beads and set to work while Alie Marie played.  This is a walk through of today’s exciting creation.

Here we go….
It all begins with bent nose pliers, flush cutters, a headpin and rosary pliers

You twist the head pin making a loop on the bottom to catch the beads. Then a loop on top. You use either of these loops to hook onto the chain.
 
These are the finished beads.
Cut out what you need from the chain.
These are the beads attached to the chain along with the earring findings I am going to use.
 
I attached the chained beads to the findings and……VIOLA! A brand new pair of earrings.
