Bangladesh Earrings Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Coiled wire and beads make a statement in these daring earrings! Cynthia used an Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blend along with Artbeads Designer Wire to create a beaded coil bead on the Cobra Coiler wire tool. The results are fabulous! See more ideas for using coiled wire in your designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.

Step one:
String seed beads from the 11/0 TOHO Round Artbeads Four Shades Designer Blend onto a piece of 24 gauge Silver Artbeads Designer Wire. Coil this wire using the Cobra Coiler wire tool. This will create a beaded coil. Slide a piece of 20 gauge Silver Artbeads Designer Wire through the coil. This piece should be slightly longer on both ends than the beaded coil. Coil this using the Cobra Coiler to create a beaded coil bead. For help using this tool, see our Mini Tutorial Video.

Step two:
Slide the beaded coil bead onto a 2-inch 22 gauge sterling silver eye pin and make a simple loop on the other end of the eye pin. Attach a 21mm matte silver-plated pewter tassel charm to one loop on the eye pin using a sterling silver 5.95mm open jump ring. For help opening and closing jump rings, see our Handy Tip Video.

Step three:
Open the loop on the antique silver-plated French hook earwire with ball and coil and attach it to the top loop on the eye pin. Close the loop to secure the earwire in place. Repeat steps one through three to make the other earring.
