Step One: Measure two strips of wire at 9″. Cut with wire trimmers.
Step 2: Smooth the edges with a small needle file on both ends.
Step 3: Round nose pliers are required for this step. Coil the both wire strips to make a tub-like base. Make sure the diameter of the inner circle can securely hold both chains you have selected. Suggested coils 6-8.
Step 4: The final coiled wire should look like this. Now with a flat nose plier round the wire into an ear shape. Test on your ears for comfort and fit.
Step 5: After the ear shape has been completed round the extra wire inward. Place on ear for a comfort and fit check once again.
Step 6: Cut chain into desired length. Our thicker chain was 12″ and the thinner was 10″. Put a couple drops of glue into the coil and carefully place the chains inside on both sides. Let dry.
