You will need :
Round nose, Flat nose and Cutter Pliers
and 2 each of ~
Earring findings
Head pins
Crystal Rondelle round beads/ or Glass Pearls 8mm
Crystal Spacer Rondelle Beads 8mm
Red faceted Teardrop 8mm x 12mm
Small Glass Pearls 

Start by taking a head pin and adding all of your beads in order as seen below

Using your flat nose pliers bend over head pin 45 degrees as below

Using your round nose pliers and hold your beads at 45 degree with head pin pointing up make a loop
Open loop using flat nose pliers and attach Earring finding and close loop. Voila!!

Here is Grans Little Beader in action....

Love the Santa earrings Ali.

What a cutie Jack is. My grandson is the same age, he's 4 today. Poor wee soul had a party this morning and one this afternoon and then his own tomorrow afternoon. His mum says he'll be shattered tomorrow night. And full of birthday cake!

I've had a lovely catch up looking at all your lovely and varied projects. Fingers crossed my new broadband provider is better than the last!

Take care.
