I created these earrings using some of Jesse's new beads. To show them off, I put them on a backdrop of brass bezels.
10 4x2mm peanut beads
2 brass kidney wire earrings
2 2" brass ball headpins
Tools: metal punch, round nose and needle nose pliers.

1. Punch a hole through the center of the bezel with a metal punch.
2. String the headpin through the charm with ball facing the front, string the bezel on the headpin. Bend the headpin at a 45 degree angle.
3. Create a loop at top of the bezel and wrap the rest of the wire around the loop of the bezel.
4. Put the bezel on the loop of the earwire. Use the needle nose pliers to close the top of the loop on the earwire. Open the earwire and string on 5 peanut bead beads.
I would put a little drop of beader's glue on the last seed bead to make sure it doesn't slide of the wires.
