These elegant earrings feature beautiful summer colors in apple green and brass.  Paired with our new Molten Metal Mix brass posts, they really shine!  One fun tip, add a little creativity by mixing in tiny crystals or seed beads within the messy wrap for extra pizazz.

Step 1:
Cut 1' foot of brass wire.  String a turquoise teardrop bead onto one end of the wire.  Using chain nose pliers, bend one side of the wire so that it rests on the top of the bead like the 3rd photo shows.


Step 2:
With the other side of the wire, make a simple wrap around the bent wire.  Tip, grasp the loop with round nose pliers while wrapping to stabilize the loop.  Cut off the excess wire.


Step 3:
Now create a messy wrap above the top of the turquoise bead with the rest of the brass wire.  Grasp the loop with round nose pliers, and wrap, with your fingers, the wire around the bead.  If desired, add tiny beads to the wire, or make a small wrap.


Step 4:
Using chain nose pliers, open a jumpring and attach the messy wrapped turquoise drop to the Molten Metal Mix brass post earring.  Repeat these 4 steps for the 2nd earring.  Voilà!  Your finished Molten Brass Post earbobs!
