Instructions
 

Step #1

Make two mobius units. See below.

Step #2

Cut the 15” piece of 19 strand beading wire into two equal pieces. 

Step #3

Thread onto one piece of wire:

 - one black bead - 1 red bead 

 - 1 black bead

 - 1 möbius unit 

 - 1 black bead 

 - 1 cream colored bead 

 - 1 black bead

Step #4

Add one #2 tube crimp to wire in your left hand, thread the wire in your right hand through the tube bead from right to left. The wires should cross inside the tube crimp.

Step #5

Leave about ¼” of wire showing and using your crimp tool crimp the tube crimp.

Step #6

Place one crimp cover over the crimp.

Step #7

Gently push the beads up against the crimp cover.

Step #8

Add another crimp cover to the beading wire. This crimp cover should slide along the wire.

Step #9

Open the loop on one ear wire and scoop up the beading wire between the two crimp covers. Close the loop.

Step #10

Repeat steps 1 through 9 for the second earring.

Step #11- Making Mobius Units 

Close one 18g 15/64” jump ring.

Step #12

With an open 18g 15/64” jump ring scoop up the closed jump ring added in step 11. Close the jump ring.

Step #13

With an open 18g 15/64” jump ring scoop up the closed jump ring added in step 11 and the jump ring added in step 12. Close the jump ring. The three jump rings should nestle as indicated in the picture. Flip the jump rings around so that they stack on top of each other like a deck of cards.

Step #14

With an open 18g 15/64” jump ring scoop up the closed jump ring added in step 11, the jump ring added in step 12, and the jump ring added in step 13. Close the jump ring. The four jump rings should nestle as indicated in the picture.

Step #15

With an open 18g 15/64” jump ring scoop up the closed jump ring added in step 11, the jump ring added in step 12, the jump ring added in step 13, and the jump ring added in step 14. Close the jump ring. The five jump rings should nestle as indicated in the picture.
