Now we're going to make the earring, the actual earring. Here is the headpin, what you do is I'm going to make a little bead on the end just like your centerpiece here, to kind of match what the necklace is. So I put the silver bead on the headpin, and then I'm going to string on these extra beads from the necklace onto the headpin, like so. So we have a matching earring set, and we will go ahead and put a little another silver bead on here and then curl it just like the, we did on the centerpiece to make it hook onto the earring wire. Is that enough? You want to make sure that they're the same distance. Maybe a little bit longer, two more beads. Okay, let's see if that's long enough. They match, one bead off. Okay. Okay, then we go ahead and trim off the excess, leaving a little bit of a quarter, curl it, oops, put the silver bead on there, then curl it to go inside the other silver bead here, okay. Then sometimes it bends a little bit, you just straighten it up, because this is sterling, you can straighten them up. Then you have an end done, then we'll put the French wires on.
