Stop buying all your crafty, unique jewelry from overpriced Williamsburg boutiques. Here is a quick way to make some cute ear candy.

Things you will need:

Wrapping Wire with pliers
Step One: Add your bead to the Eye Pin, and hold the long end with your Chain-Nose Pliers.

Step Two: As you hold the Eye Pin with your Chain-Nose Pliers, wrap the wire down towards the bead with your finger. Tighten with the Round-Nose Pliers.
