Measure and cut 2 pieces of wire 3 inches long and 2 pieces of wire 1 inch long.
Using round-nose pliers, make a simple loop on one end of each of the 3 inch wires. Make a second loop by placing the round-nose pliers above the loop and bending the wire back over the top of the pliers.
Remove the loops from the pliers and with your hands, make a bend like a candy cane as shown in the photo.
Using a Sharpie Marker, wrap the bottom of the wire around the marker.
Using round-nose pliers, make a loop on the tail of the large loop.
On the steel block, hammer the outer edge of the large loop.
Take one of the 1 inch pieces of wire and hammer the tip to flatten slightly. Slide the bead onto the 1 inch piece.
Place the earring component around the bead so the flattened wire extends past the frame.
Use round-nose pliers to bend the end of the hammered 1 inch piece into a small loop.
Use chain-nose pliers to press down the small loop onto the earring frame.
Trim the wire on the opposite side leaving 3/16 of an inch. Being careful not to hit your thumb or the bead, place the wire on the outer edge of your steel block and hammer the end flat.
Trim any excess wire to just the length you need to wrap the frame. Use chain-nose pliers to finish securing to the frame.
Repeat all the steps to make a second earring and add ear wires to complete.
