1. Slide one pearl bead onto one head pin. Using your round-nose pliers, begin the wrapped loop technique by wrapping the wire around the nose of the pliers, but don't wrap the wire around itself. Thus the wrap isn't closed yet.
2. Slip the loop on the leverback ear wire onto the head pin.
3. Close the wrapped loop, squeezing gently with your chain-nose pliers.
4. Trim off any excess head pin using the wire cutters.
5. Repeat Steps 1 through 4 for the second earring.
