As Promised... Earrings and Necklace...
You will probably need a pair of needle nosed pliers or fine tweezers to bend the hooks and loops on the ends.
Now down to business. First string five beads on the wire and put the two ends together to get them in the exact middle. Twist the two wires together once just above the loop and put one more bead on. go through that bead with both wires.
Then slip a bead over the wires to cover the twist.
On the first side slide the end of your wire back into the first bead. Twist it around the wire between the first and second bead and cut it off.
For the earrings, simply cut about two inches of the wire to start. You need that much, so that you will have something to hang onto.
Put five beads on the wire and wrap one wire around the other one and cut off. With the help of your tweezers, bend the remaining wire into a hook. Cut off the excess wire. There you have it! A new jewelry set for Tessie... Err... I mean your favorite doll.
See you tomorrow.
