thin-nosed jewelry pliers
thin gold wire
amethyst beads or small stones
E6000 or other craft glue
earring post findings


small stones on a sandy beach
Indulge your inner beach comber – normally I don’t take things from the beach, but these stones were so cute and tiny and I couldn’t resist.


Directions

Step 1

wrap the gold wire around the thin-nosed pliers 5-6 times. cut or bend off.


How to prepare the coil for the amethyst

Step 2

slide a bead or stone into the center of the coil
