Jade Cluster Earrings

These beautiful green earrings will add a touch of elegance to your outfit, but are also swingy and playful. Now that we are defrosting from winter, it seemed appropriate to make some spring earrings!
Materials: two briolette beads, 4mm green beads, 28 gauge wire, head pins, 4mm jump rings, ear wires, bent nose pliers, round nose pliers, and wire cutters. 
Cut off several feet of the wire, and thread it through the briolette. Twist each end together. 
Shape a loop with the round nose pliers with one of the pieces of wire. 
Begin wrapping the wire around the bead. After several wraps, trim the ends. 
Tuck the ends under the last loop, and press down with the pliers. 
Thread a small bead on a head pin, and bend the end. Trim the excess and form a loop. 
Open a jump ring and use it to attach the briolette to the dangle.
Make another dangle, and attach it with a jump ring to the jump ring from the previous dangle. 
Continue adding these beads and jump rings . I used ten for each earring. Then add the ear wire with another jump ring. 
All finished!
