About This Class

Beautifully textured silver and delicately coloured faceted rose quartz beads are used in the class to make a pretty pair of earrings.

This is a great class for helping you to progress your soldering skills, and also to learn how to create an unusual style of earwire that has the tail of the wire tucked under a hook - elegant and very secure!


This is one of a series of video classes, each one showing you how to quickly and easily make a lovely pair of earrings - sometimes two pairs - as part of my #52earrings challenge. I have challenged myself to design and film tutorials for 52 pairs of earrings in 2017, and I'd love you to join me. In each video I will show you the materials you will need, explain the tools and equipment and go through all the steps needed to create your own lovely pair of earrings. Along the way I will share with you the same hints and tips that I teach in my jewelry making classes and private tuition so that you become more confident with your techniques and design skills with each class that you watch.

This class is an intermediate class as previous experience of soldering is useful.

The equipment needed for the project is explained in the videos and also listed on a downloadable document that covers most of the tools that I will use in future earrings video classes as well so you can plan ahead! All the equipment listed can be used for a variety of other jewellery making projects.

1. Rose Garden Drop Earrings - an intermediate project: Hello, My name's John Tinley. I'm a Georgian signer and shooter from South Coast UK. I welcome to the Rose Garden drop earrings. At first glance, this class might not to look that different from some of the other ones in the Siri's. However, you might already know from watching from my other classes. I like to teach you something new, a new skill or show you a twist on design or even a new way of using a piece of equipment in each different cloths on this time, the different skills I want to teach you is how to make a difference. Star. You are so to see that you need to have a look at the back of the hearing. These were wise is sometimes called French, so you waas and, as you can see the tail of the ear. While that's passed through your ear catches on Geritol Hook that's formed soldiers to the back of the hearing quite half after that. These ear wise are separate to design and have a little loop with bottoms, allows the beads for dangle from them, but in this case are actually sold it to the back. And that's what makes this an intermediate class because the soldering skills that you're going to use take a little bit of practice and patience. And so if you re got solving experience, you will find this class for Pity's. I've texted the main part of the hearings using my rolling mill, but you could just as easily from plane. He's a hammock texture or maybe use design stamps instead. This class is part of the 52 hearings Chance I set myself in 2017. Design and film. 52 different hearing auditoriums have a look out for the hash tag. 52 Hearings on Instagram Facebook If you'd like to see some behind the scenes photos on Web hits about what's coming next. But for now, if you'd like to get started, but have a look at the materials and the equipment that you're going to need to make the hearings 2. Rose Garden Drop Earrings - materials: the's of the materials that we're going to need to make the road. Garden earrings. The earrings get their name from the lovely Rose courts beads I've got here. There are Rondell Shape, which is basically they're around, but they look so they been squashed a bit. These beans have got a lovely faceted finish around the edge of them that is going to 1000 catch light beautifully. Despite their very delicate coloring, they're going to be dangling below a texted rectangular silver on. They start off as too simple planes smooth rectangles. I'm using no 0.7 millimeter sheet, which is a nice thickness for earrings even off. It's being rolled rolling mill on these measure. 13 millimeters by 26 millimeters. I actually used the size of rectangle in quite a few different projects that I make. And so I actually asked my supplier to provide rectangles already cuts to size, which helps to speed things up on when you're making jewelry. As a business, your time is money, so it's sometimes worth getting things cut to size for you. However, of course, you could just as easily cut these out yourself from bigger piece, so sheet I've also got some not 0.8 millimeter or 20 days selling silver around. Why I'm going to use that to form the ear wise and also to form the hedge pins that the beads is going to be threaded onto. 3. Rose Garden Drop Earrings - equipment: the's the tools that we're going to need to make the earrings as you've seen, I'm going to be using rectangles of wire that have bean cut to that particular size by my supplier because I use that side quite a bit. Alternatively, if you're going to be cutting the rectangles out yourself from selling silver sheet, you're going to need a juror's sore bench play to support your work and an apron underneath to catch the dust so you don't waste it on. It can go for recycling. I'm going to texture my silver. Using the rolling mill, however, you could use design stumps or hammers toe and your texture instead, if you want to. After text string, I'm going to use the needle file to smooth and round off the corners of the rectangle to make them a bit more pleasing shape. And so there aren't any sharp corners. And then it's going to be time to start preparing the ear wires. I'm going to use the flat nose pliers, the nine on your pliers, around those supplies on the wire cutters to work on the ear wise, even preparation or finishing him off. And I'm going to use a step Mandel to for the U shaped the bend in the ear wire. However, you could use a Sharpie or something else around and suitably sized. Instead, I'm going to use a Sharpie on the ruler to mark off the amount of wire that I need for the ear wires and also for the head pens that we're going to hold the beats and place at the bottom of the year rings. I also use the needle file to meeting up the end of the year wise, unless you're putting a homage text yet in your silver your revenge. Need one hammer for this project, a plan ish ing hammer, and I'm going to be using that to hammer the front of the ear wise slightly to give them a bit of extra strength while some hammering. I'm going to support the work on the bench block with the letter cushion underneath to support everything and keep the noise down. I'm going to need to drill a hole at the bottom of each rectangle so that the head pin can attach the bead to the bottom of the hearing. I'm going to be using my bench drill, but Ah, hands. Jewel would do the job just as well. This is a soldering project. So it's also have a look at the soldering equipment that we're going to need to finish the earrings. 4. Rose Garden Drop Earrings - soldering equipment: I think this is the soldier equipment, as I use for all of my smaller projects, such as earrings and sore pendants, Everything sitting on a couple of slate tiles, a heatproof surface to help protect my desk on my work sits on a couple of soldering bricks , soldering blocks while some heating it up. One of these soldering bricks is made of a softer material than the others. Because it's softer, it's picked up some dips and some cracks in it. It's being used over the years, and these could be very useful for supporting work that isn't completely flat. The charcoal block is there because I melt small piece of scrap on top of that on. Do they form nice of my balls as I am used to decorate my projects when I need to pick up my work or to support it whilst I'm soldering? I used reverse action tweezers that you can see here and have also got a pair on a stand through 1/3 hand, and it's there when I need 12 on extra hands to help me out. The blue handled stick is a soldier pick on and that I used to push soldier, move it about to make sure it it's exactly what I wanted to be. Soldier usually comes in strips or sticks. Andi, I've got three different melting temperatures here that I using combination for different projects. The soldier gets cut into small pieces or Palin's you ting. The red handles snips as I keep those little pieces in the labeled boxes that you can see do. Make sure that you label your boxes because once a soldier is cut up, you won't be hard to tell which is which. Melting temperature. My curl over the ends off the sticks of solder so that I can tell which melting temperature they are, the more cold over they are, they're higher. The mountain temperature, bright yellow liquid is a flux. Solder won't actually flow out through the joining unless you use a flux with it. Andi, the paintbrushes. What I used to apply the flux to the joints in my work. Small projects like hearings only need a small blowtorch, and I've got two different makes of those here. Both of them are easy to refill with the gas that comes in aerosol cans. Since the same type of gas, butane gas that you use to reform cigarette lighter. At the back of the picture, you can see a so cooker that Scots a very mild acid solution. Good safety pickle in it. When you heat silver up, the surface becomes not darker and dirtier looking that some of the capo in the study silver reacting with the heat and auction flame to forward cause copper oxides on the safety pickle cleans it a couple oxides up before you put your work in the safety pickle, it needs to be cooled down or quenched in a pot of water. Andi, you need to put your work in and out of the safety pickle with brass or plastic tweezers. Not the stainless steel ones that I showed you before and thus, but definitely not least our have safety glasses. You've only got one pair of eyes. Look after them carefully. 5. Rose Garden Drop Earrings - texturing: e come over to the bench where I keep my rolling mill to show you in, close up the two rectangles now taken the blue plastic coating off them. You can see the nice and shiny Onda also to show you the material that I'm going to send, so the rolling mill wisdom to give a lovely, flowery texture. This is one of the late and great texture sheets that I design and make this one's called spring blooms smaller zor so large a version of it. But I thought if he swore rectangles a nice, flowery small pattern or do nicely that go really well with the road courts. I've also got a pair off sharp cities to cut this because I'm not gonna be sending the whole sink through the rolling mill. I can cut small pieces off on. I'm going to cut pieces that are not quite as long as this section here, but definitely watch about there definitely longer than the piece silver on whether you are sending through a piece off ribbon or a piece over linen or even a piece off watercolor paper, because that could give a beautiful texture or those things need to be cut slightly longer than the silver that you are sending through the rolling mill because the silver will be stretched out, but the other material will not, so you don't want to run out of it. If you were to cut off the exact same size as a rectangle you would run out on, not all of it would be textured. So to make sure that you don't run out to the material, you need to cut off a longer piece. So I'm going to cut off two pieces, one for each, because I can't use same piece for boats once I send it through. Once it's going to be flattened slightly. And although I would still be able to get another texture from it, it would be not quite such a deep texture as I got from the first time. So the two rectangles for use the same piece of card each time the two rectangles wouldn't match up, so to get them to match up in the intensity of the texture, even if I don't get them much stops the exact same part of the pattern. I'm going to use a new piece of card each time, So I'm going to cut those off and then move the camera so that you get a better view of the rolling mill so you can see everything going through there to get the nice in Boston texture. This is my lovely rolling mill. It's a dust and rolling mill, which is a really good make, but you can also get more value range of rolling mills for only a couple £100 which might seem like a lot. But when you compare its best part, £1000 for this a couple £100 does seem a lot better. Andi even supposed that couple £100 you'd end up with a tool that would soon become amazing. Andi can't be without piece of equipment, your workshop, because it could be used for rolling and thinning out. So a sheet city seen me do in other earring classes to produce pieces of sheets that are thinner and therefore miss cycling silver that's left over from other projects. These groups here are used for rolling out wire again, a way of recycling heavier gauge wire into longer, thinner pieces of wire. So there are rolling mill is probably a piece of equipment that you spend the most amount of money on your workshop. It really is one that could do a wide variety of jobs and actually, by recycling, help you save a little bit of money in the long run. But in this class, I'm going to be using it for text a ring from the way that it works. Use that the wheel up here moves the rollers closer together or further apart. Andi, the handle that he just felt see on the side here turns the rollers and so pieces of sheet on. And in this case, pieces of texture sheet is well get pulled to the rollers on. The pressure from the rollers spreads the silver out. It rolls it out in this direction. And also, when you send through something to text the silver it in bosses that pattern into the silver as well. Now, when you sending through something that gives the pattern like this, you really do only have one shot to get the pattern, and therefore you do need to make sure that you set the rollers up correctly on, and that's what I'm going to show you how to do now. So what I'm going to do is open up the rollers little bit mawr so that I can put both silver on the texture sheet between the rollers on and closing that up so that it's hand tight is not really, really tight. It's just firmly closed on. I've got a gauge up at the top here. I'm just going to check to see what's that? Gay says. The number on here doesn't correspond completely to the sickness of the two metals together because he's aren't 100% accurate. But what I'm doing is just noting that are mine. It's to not. She's the left of the North 1000.25 that's written on the gauge here so that I could open it out. Andi, I'm going to do is I'm going to turn it. So see the original mark, where it waas regional setting, where it was two marks left of no 20.25 I'm just going to give the quarter turn on my rolling mill. Andi, that is my starting point for setting up the rolling mill. I just so happens that because I use this size of sheet a lot with my texture sheets to make different pieces. Jewelry. I know the exact setting that I need for this, and I've actually used a Sharpie to mark it up here. But to work out what I needed that mark to be. Once I got to this stage, I then use some copper of the same sickness and the same wits of thesis. Some interesting morning soon, now and sent. That's through. If the texture doesn't come out strongly as you like, then the rollers need tightening if it is far too tight for you to roll through. If you can't actually move the handle and roll it so they need to know that you need to loosen the rollers. So with some copper a little bit of try and ever Once you know roughly what setting you need, you can work out your perfect setting. However, I know that I actually need to turn another needy quarter return to the mark that you can see up here said. Now I'm ready to send the silver through to texture it. As you've really seen. I'm using silver that's come straight from a supplier on DSO. It is already soft, ready to use. It doesn't lead kneeling because it hasn't been work hardened. However, if for this project you are using scrap silver that you have passed wrote with Rolling Mill already to thin it out and get it suitable for this project, you will need to Aneel silver before you can text your it on. That's whether you are text string with a rolling mill with texture punches or with a hammer so recycled sheet going to kneel it before you do the texting. Sage. Nice fresh sheet from your supply. You don't need to a nail even Just go straight home. I'm coming little bit closer. See? See what I'm doing, going to hold the silver on the texture sheet so that they are perpendicular to the rollers . I don't want them going through it and angle, because that would mean that be some uneven spreading out of silver, and I wouldn't still have a nice rectangle. My finished. So I want to make sure that they are going through head on perpendicular to the rollers and turn the handle to send them through. Okay, that's the 1st 1 1st 1 textured can't quite see it like that. So I'm going to move the camera again so you can see a close up of the texture piece on the untech stirred piece for comparison. So we got a comparison off the pieces just one through, and you can see the lovely texture that's on there compared to the nicely flat piece there . And also see that the piece of cars, as I set foot through with it and the silver have got a bit of a a curve to them. And that's the result of sentence through the rollers when the rollers were quite tight together. So it's a lot of pressure on the silver on. That's not just pushed the pattern in silver bullets or so formed a curve. I'm going to keep that curve in my design because I think it's quite a nice, pleasing shape. However, if he wants to get rid of it, you could use an island. Your pliers just squash the silver flat to gently. I'm going to send through the second piece, so so I've got too much in textures, Pizzas 6. Rose Garden Drop Earrings - filing: e What? My tube. Beautifully textured pieces of silver Onda made sure that they all still the same lengths I know they started offers the same length, really? So I asked a slight cut into the same late for me. But it is worth double checking that they are still the same length after they've been through the rolling mill. But the corners of them are really quite sharp, and that's not going to make for a nice piece of jewelry. So we're going to do is use the needle file just to smooth and round off those corners. I'm just sweeping across. It's called her in turn 1st 1 You see, it doesn't take very long, but it really is worth doing. - It's one you can see. See the difference much nicer shape, a lot more comfortable to put your fingers up against. If you had so on your silver rectangles out instead of getting them cut for you, then you might also need to go around the edges with the needle file. I just remove marks left by is your sore. He might also want to go around with some emery paper and just Rupp sunde the edges as well to make some smooth as possible. But Caz might have Bean cut for me. Come with agility. I don't need that during It's the last corner. Okay? One thing I am going to do, though, is filing at the cornices pushed few birds over on the front and the back. So just just the corners. I'm going to hold you need a file at about 45 degrees and just sweep across. I'm a menace. Ice buzz. They're not fine on the checks to this one. Just put in are not filing on the smooth back. Just grant 45 degrees just dressing those burgers. But so those pieces of silver are very nearly prepared for soldering. The last thing I want to do before I sold, or just purely because it's going to be easier to hold the silver without the ear wires being in place. It's a drill, a hole in the middle along the bottom edge. That hole is going to be for the head pain. This is going to hold the beat in place at the bottom of the earrings 7. Rose Garden Drop Earrings - drilling: it's time to drill a hole at one end of each rectangle. Ondas every said that hole is going to allow the wire from the head pin to pass through so that the beacon dangle nicely below the earrings. I've already pushed a Sharpie mark at the bottom of each rectangle. I've used the ruler to measure the midpoint and gone sightly in from that so that the whole isn't too close to the edge alive marked on the back rather than the front, because thesis over is like curved put into the front, trying to drill into a sloping Peter Silver ease of a bit more difficult, However, I can hold the silver flat up against a piece of wood if I'm drilling in through from the other side so that it's going to be a lot easier to drill through. So I'm going to do is before I turn the drill bits on foot on the drill, or rather, to make job it go around is I'm just going to use the handle on the side here, so I think he's going to Miss Body has a handle on the side off the machine that allows the drill bits to go up and down. So I'm going to just double check that of things in the right place and then turn the draw on and you're both peters of silver. - So remove psyche, then. Such worth just checking in the of things in the right place. So to Drew's hosts. So the whole I moved about the light to drill holes one at the end of each piece off silver . The next stage is going to be putting the ear wires off the back of the rectangles to continue forming the earrings. 8. Rose Garden Drop Earrings - soldering: I've cut to 6.5 centimeter links of a 0.82 millimeter around Stoney Silver wire on. I'm going to use that to formally here, wise guy, come over the Soviets section because, as I said already I'm going to sold at the back of the earrings have been a few things in preparation. 1st 1 is that be able to see on this piece of wire I've been top the last little bit that is going to form the hook off the air. Y remember, the hearing of the ear wire is going to be soldered on this section. The rest of stem is then going to be folded over onto into a U shape C ear y shape on, then the tail here. What is going to hook behind the section here? So this is forming the first part, the hook, and it's going to be sourced in place so that it sticks up from the main section of the hearing. It is best to fold it up and start forming the hook at this stage because it's easier to access that end of the wire are finish forming the hook over fresh bending it over once or so. Double thing in place, but it's better. Saudia UAE in place with folded up already. That way the soldier won't accidentally run a little bit further down the ear. Why? And soldier this big flat onto the hearing as well? The other thing is I've done in preparation is that I've put line down the middle, rushed down the middle from the top. That is how far I want to the ear y to go. I've also put amid Mark running from the top of the hearing Down on that is the line that I'm going to soldier the war ago. So it's worth doing this preparation so that it helps you to get your earrings of neatly soldiers possible. There's much as possible. You can see I've done the same to the 2nd 1 here, So I used the lion tiger in the 1st 1 That's template basically to mark on the 2nd 1 as well, because he removed that out of the way on and show you how that I but this up some using my flat nose pliers, I'm using the wits of suppliers as a guide. Hold the why in the tips there and just banged up. So it across the sovereign breakfast optional but just burned yourselves up Quite right angle. There we go until it's so so so right about ankle right angle. So that's very silver in place. Let's move this one after way because you don't want to have things on the soldier in great kind. Necessarily. You don't want them to be heating up before you're ready for them to heat up. Really? Because I'm going to be moving things about. I don't want things getting hot on here and then have to move about. The other thing I brought on here is, um, to penny piece, small coin or see if you know in UK, you might have a let's say, have a two penny piece, but you should have a suitable coin. Just toe prop the earring up. It will remember the year ring is curved slightly, so if I got it sitting on the block like that and trying to hold, you are in place as oppressed and she's going to move to make life a bit more difficult. So just propping it up like so means that it's a little bit more stable, so that's an advantage. But a disadvantage of having this here is it's a heat sink. It draws heat away from the silver, so it takes longer for the silver to get up to solving temperature. So to speed things up a little bit, actually put some heat in here already, so it's not constantly drawing the heat away from the silver. This is also good point to mention that my earrings have watch, as I just said, a slight curve to thumb formed when they went through the wrong melty texture. If yours, I've got a more pronounced curve that you might need to bend the ear Y slightly so fits the curve. Andi can sit nicely up against the back of the hearing mind cause it's such gentle curve. It's absolutely fine. Doesn't need mending anymore office if you use another message, for example, hammering Teoh put texture on the front of your hearing. Or if indeed you just left it playing, then you don't have to worry about it being curved. It all my last thing to point out is this. I've got a small row off very small pieces off Easy soldier. Here, you sort of Italians. I cut my soldier very small. Eso I've got about five pieces here. Five very small pieces. What I'm going to do is they see a while in the flux, which is just out of view of the camera, and then hold it against the soldier. I melt the solder onto the wire on that way, the soldier be exactly what I wanted to be for when I placed on here on their remote, solder its flow out and face two pieces together. If you've gone through the simple leaf drops class, then you'll see me do something similar with solder paste, with the stem of the leaf being made up of why that then continues upwards to form the ear wire on. And instead of putting soda, Palin's on the why I put some solder paste and then remotes it in place. I wanted to show you that although it's quite easy to do it with paste, it is more than possible to do it with soda. Palin's he just needs Officer Flux and maybe a little bit more patients to set it up before put the soldier on, though, I'm going to do one more thing in preparation on that is marking on the air wire. How far down the air wise going to go So putting a Sharpie mark just holding the air y So the bend is at the junction of my two shopping marks. There are putting shopping Mark maybe a millimeter in from the top, because I don't want soldier to go a past that I just wanted on this section. There's a little bit of, ah, room for error, for inflation a bit further, but I don't want it to flow further up. It's a way of making sure you're sort of join is so little bit neater by having a soldier exactly where you want it to be. So just dip. The EU are in flux, just such a view of the camera and then hold it across the soldier on about Soviet place. Okay, why twisted over? Don't We saw them because I loosened the pliers a tiny bit accidentally on some without heating. So why twisted over? But that's certainly a big issue. The soldiers still where I wanted to bay, I could just Brendan by let me go. So just quoting it properly in the tweeters. Okay, So making sure got everything lined up where I wanted to pay. Just move the tweezers little bit further down. Just made tweeted a little bit further down the wire so that I've got a bit of a stable hold. Okay, so everything's lined up over. Put some heat in here first, and then apply the wire. Carry on heating for bit. Get that soldier to flow out again. Again. Twisted over. That's stressful, right? Yep. Happy with that position. Go. We have seen there that at one point I pulled the ear wire away. The soldier was still molten. It was still it quits. I could tell that I could do that. It wasn't stuck together. I poured it away and then moved it back into place. Because whilst I was holding, everything slipped slightly. Moved further across this way. So don't be afraid. What? You take the torture weight move things, but it's the way you want them to pay. But that is now in C. Sold it in place, and soda has gone up across the ear. Why? They're so that you'd be quenched on going pickle. What side do the same to his pair. That one was a lot easier to soldiers. I wasn't talking. At the same time. You can see that the soldier has run nicely all the way along there neater than the 1st 1 The 1st 1 has a bit of extra roger soldier that I might need to need in up. Um, I have a look when I catched us to pickle, but not conjoined. It's pair in. Quench brought on the pickle to clean up on whilst it's cleaning, I will show you how to make the hedge pins that will attach through the whole of the bottom . 9. Rose Garden Drop Earrings - making the head pins: I've cut to 4/2 centimeter lengths off no 0.8 millimeter wire on. I'm going to use these to make a pair of head pins. The roast court speeds are going to hang on hedge pins, and then I'm going to turn a simple loop at the top since I thought I loop so that that could be passed through the hole that I killed at the bottom of the earrings to connect everything together. Now, if I was doing a rap group rather than a I group, I need longer peters of wire, maybe a centimeter, centimeter and 1/2 longer to account for the wire that wrapped around, as the name suggests with a rap group wrapped around the stem just underneath the loop. However I've chosen to do I loops because it's going to hold the beads a little bit closer . Toothy hearing. But I'm going to melt but bull but one end off each piece of wire and I got the equipment. Here's I need what I smell. Smoke blowtorch, hope hair, river section, tweezers from there. Hold the wire in. I've got some fire bricks of soldiering blocks behind me, so they are protecting back here a little bit more. I'm working on a couple state child's for five through surface. I've also got my quench porch just beside me here. I'm right handed, So having my quench part of my right on the blowtorch on my left means that I can holds the piece of wire in the flame like so as soon as the Bulls right side I could take across and just drop it in the quench pot. So everything set up in a way for me to work efficiently and safely, all you need to do to mount to the end of the piece of wire is just hold the wire in the flame there, hold it just in front of blue. Tip the flames. That's hottest part. It's steeped in flame, while then the end will just ball up all it. So if you haven't made any head spins before, then you might want to cut off more than two pieces of wire on make more than just one pair head pins, and then you can choose the two that are the best fit. But with a little practice is it'll be easier to get him to be a best fit. So I'm just going to do to Tony Tony, some blue chip just about there. I leave my wife that my stated clearly if I put the treatise at the end there, so let's get these melted. There's one keeping the flame, but keep the moving about a little bit. I find that gets to smooth this ball. In the end. I'm to all right, I'll share close supper. Those he can see what they look like now. I've just taken the to head pins out of the quench parched. But as you can see from the organization, they haven't been cleaned up in the pickle yet as she, one of them, has some organization than the other on it. For some reason sometimes happens like that, but its site thesis a different color. You should be able to see that the bulls on the end are actually a really good match, there said. If you're not quite competent, yes, and getting a good match between the head spins, then make more than two and use the ones that fit here the best. Alternatively, if you find that one of your head pins is a little bit smaller, than the other. Then just turn the flame back on. Put it back in the flame. I melted a little bit more. So these now need to go and pick apart, trickling up before I can use them to attach the road. Court Beats a bottom of Hearings 10. Rose Garden Drop Earrings - finishing the earwires: now that the organizations being cleaned off the earrings, it's time to finish off the ear wise before I put them in the tumble portion on. The first thing I want to do is just make sure that the wise are straighten kinks cinemas. You can see that once. Qatar, if a bend is a funny angle it. So I'm going to use the night on your pliers just to whole the wife through. Make sure this is really nice and smooth major kinks in it on. This is also a really good test of that soldier. Join to make sure everything's fitted on their nice thing. It's going to come off same to the other one. By the way, this is the one that I thought that might be a little bitter of excess solder flowing out. And though there's a little bit more visible solder on this one than this one, it's not unacceptable. If it waas, then I use a needle file just to get a little bit. Suggest his visa, just probably a rounded or half round or over illegal file. Just remove a little bit and then get rid of the far marks the Emery paper, but it didn't actually need to. But both of those fireboats O ce wise and house. And I said straight now. So I need to do I was still not who she was. You do well, Would you look at that? I thought I cut the boat to this actual same length. Leprosy didn't happen. So best of us seeking, See? So that's a very clear difference. So I'm going to do is just trim a longer one off. So they all now both the same links. I know that these sections of the same lengthy bits here to start off the hook because I went them both up with the same pair of pliers. Those are OK, but what I'm going to do next is used the needle file to smooth over both the end here and the end here. So for this, send us you can see I'm doing is just what's keeping your father in the same basic position . Turning the earring round itself, Seiken far from four sides on Just always he's your fingers as much as your eyes to make sure. Sure feel smooth Skitch, I'm going to do the same to this sends well, now because there's that that bitch off season going to go to your ears. I do want to make sure that is license smooth. It's not going to catch anything I can if your fingers make sure this is it's done nicely. Hey, that one. Same with this one. - Sent a little bit more friendly to do because it's so close to the after the earring. My child, my friend. Best to make sure that I don't put the needle file on the back of the hearing and put unnecessary marks there. So you hear very different. It's difficult to support the things of Why said your father vibrates. That's in the ways that you can hear. Okay, so that part is done. Next thing to do is to finish off the hooks here, and I'm going to use around those plants. Those moves a bit so fish with out of the way. Andi, something to do is form a U shape with this section here, so I'm going to hold the pliers so that the wire is as far down inside the plants as I can hold it. I can't feel and tour can't feel the end of the white tours I worked across there and I've got the wire. About 1/4 of the way down applies on. So I'm going to do is just spend those supplies round to form. She offers rich form a little bit of a U shape. If I put my finger behind there, she had to see more clearly the shape just going to call that back slightly, actually. So I'm going to get the tweezers, so get applies on tweets is back down towards the bottom, and you're just twist the wind back a bit. Andi, use a smaller party. I I am around those pliers just to bend the route around a little bit more. So I've done there is just use a smaller section applies just to make a little bit smaller . So this section here is going to be around and hook underneath. However, want to do the same with the other one. But this time I want to bend the look that way into and it was a bit more upright. So same thing again. So twist suppliers. So it spent around like that groups. But this time, my friend teach round in the offset direction So I'm going to bring a camera in a little bit closer so you can see that more clearly explain why don't in the opposite direction. So I come down on data Closer angle. Six. You got to see more clearly the hooks. As I formed I. I wanted to explain why I put them in different directions. If you think about the air wires coming over and down this year, my has got to move saying this way to be able to hook underneath so the ear y gets instead of being nice and straight as it comes over, it comes over at a slight angle so it can go under these the hook. So what I prefer to do is have one ear y maybe site towards outside on one year. Moving sight was the other side to hook hunger being loops that you formed so that the earrings air still symmetrical. So I need to finish off, forming those their wives. Now I'm going to use TheStreet manager or the middle section on the septic Mandel to turn the U shape in each a y on and don't tangle too far. Damn Could remember, got quite a long sexually leaving their on to be turned time below it. Well, so about there. So duty to make certain that the wind is going to be a hook underneath so life. So make sure that's the finishes just a little bit further down. So I could have made the's a fraction longer. I could have pulled this up a little bit, but no more than a couple of meters millimeters having meters a couple of millimeters definitely. Um so that's that's a good length. I need to do a little bit to finish off the end here so she can hook underneath Glashow that in a moment. So I need to get the second hearing to match separate back on the manual, start turning it, and then hold the earrings off against each other so that we can double check. Andi, this is still higher than this one. So I need to go back on the Mandrell. Andi, push around the front of the hearing is a bit further. Either Mandel to use up some of that. Why there? That would shock. So this section of for this part of making the air wise is very, very similar to what we've done for normal. Otherwise, it just loop around and don't worry about a hook on the bottom. So that's not the right length. So I'm going to do now is just use my finger, too. Continue to push that round, so cover things have to do 1st 1 It's time Pinto hammer this front section off each ear y so that I'm strengthen the shape so that when I fiddle about with the end here to get it to hook underneath, they're nicely. I'm not going to pull the U shape out of position on door, so it's strong enough for where I wear them that it's not gonna get hold of shape as well. So I'm going to use Theo bench block by the cushion underneath. He annoys down on, and he's clashing. Hammer just going to hammer this front section, some keeping the main section. You are hanging off the bench savage block so I can just get that section there so that's needed. Re does make a difference. You see, it catches. The light went to catching the light a little bit more here. That's the flatter area on. All that has done is just said. Put a a bit more sh but more strength into the shape. So I'm going to use the flat nose pliers again. Andi. So I'm going to do is pop the ear y circle fit bit nicely underneath here quite often. Usually, I will just use just sided with the forming the hook. I'll just use the wits of the pliers. But this time I'm going to go a little bit further back just to make sure that that can hook condom nicely. There we go. You can see putting the bend little bit further back has meant that the wire sits under nicely, so he should. Same with the 2nd 1 just But I see how far it needs to go for the bend in, right. So So when I push the wire down, he hooks under nicely. Eso this type of iwas very, very secure. Andi, All right, just use. It's nice to have another type of B y side, different design in, uh, in your arsenal. Say you can make your earrings a bit different than this, the standard that's out there that you were designed to stand out a bit more, so that needs to go in the tumble play shut to give him my shine. And then when I've done that, I will put the head pin the bead with the head pin of the bottom. They're also gonna put the head pins and some publishers. Well, I don't always I somehow just give them a rub with a polishing cross. But since I'm using some before I show to do these metal, put the head in there as well. 11. Rose Garden Drop Earrings - adding the beads: everything is now nice and shiny on dive threaded, the rose court speeds onto their head pins, so the next job is to turn a simple Lupron. I loop above each bead on the head pin and then use those leaps to threat through the holes at the bottom of the earrings to put everything together. I'm going to use around those pliers to form the loop on and the wire cutters to cut off the excess workers. There will still be a little bit left over. And if you are not already familiar with how to turn I loops or simple loops, then have a look at the step by step photo tutorials, heifer attached to the class materials. So maybe that's another itself. The way so they distracted by them I'm going to do is hold applies across the E, uh, the head pin, but right next to the beat. Since the beach can still turn round, but it can't move up and down on the wire is about 1/4 of the way down. The pliers don't want the loop to be too big, and the further down the pliers, I hold the wire, the bigger the loop is going to be ok. Do combination of turning the pliers and also beauty my fingers thumb to bend the wire around. This knows suppliers. So spend, like, so gonna move appliance round. So from that position around there, so they're in a better position to allow me to Then pull the wire across, hold it so you can see it. And yes, to focus. Okay, pull the wire. Try this way. So which quite often a challenge with small things like this to get my fingers to hold them so he actually the work was still allow you to see it. So you're gonna pull that wire across so you can see that it's now going back across itself into a world through the bead up around applies and all the way across there. So So I'm going to do now is snip off the excess wire served using the nice sharp. Why cut is snip it off just before it crosses over itself. If you can't get your proof your wire cutters in there, then you can lift up side off the loop is not reopening the lupa picks. Just putting it up, but not allows you to get in with the wire cutters. Little bit better. Useful trick if you've got quite wide beads, relatively size of the wire, as I've got here at the moments you can see the is sitting over to one site. I wanted to sit in the middle on the top of the piece of wire, not just one side. So putting pliers back inside just the tip of the pliers, back inside the loop down the bottom and just pullback with twist backwards, the group is now sitting up at the top. I can now thread that loop through the hole. Get Jenna. I don't quite get it in them. I have toward Luke up again. C Give it one more going and see if I need to open the properties a bit more. I do need to work a bit more, so I'm going to use a flat nose. Pliers. Just open it up because they are less likely to leave marks in the wire, Then around those pliers because they hold in a much smaller area there more. I put marks in the flatness. Applies just will lift it up a little bit more C C. Now that that Luke is open. That allows me to sweat it through Okay, that we're afraid to move the loop around. We need to. There's only wise, quite forgiving, and then use the same. Flatley supplies close salute down again, Ben that Why back down again? So that it it's in place on the end was the hearing, So he's the same with that one again. Hi. It's next to the beach. Twist supplies around, but also use my fingers. Some spend it, run halfway and then pull the wire across the front of the beach so the wire crosses over itself. I'm going to go straight to assuming I need to lift the wire up a little bit beyond your access to it with my Why cuts his cut the excess y off close up, down a little bit. Suits, too. Help. You see that's going to cost a bit more wide off. Just seen a little bit more. Why? So it doesn't also for itself close it back down so you can see a bit more clearly that the group it's definitely sitting on one side was I wanted to sit up top. So what I'm doing with the tips around those supplies is putting them down at the bottom of that loop, just twisting them back. So sits or at the top, little bit more. I think there we go, that's better. And then they lost. They need to do again. Flat nose pliers, lifting up besides the likes of still keeping its overall round shape. But it's just allowing me to threat the wise through the hole, I said, and then place that part time again, straight and everything up a bit more.
