    Learn some wire working skills in this PotomacBeads tutorial to create Post and Chain Earrings. Join Allie as she shares different ideas to design sleek, interchangeable earrings that have a modern flair. 1. Put a Potomac pearl or a Potomac crystal onto the head pin. Hold the wire above the bead with the round nose pliers and bend the wire around to form a small loop. Cut the wire tail off. Create the rest of the dangles to attach to your chain. 2. Watch the Post and Chain Earrings tutorial to see how Allie creates these trendy wire earrings. 3. Once you’re done with the chain portion, it’s time to attach the earwire. Form a tiny loop on a piece of wire, add a Potomac pearl onto the wire, form another loop above the pearl and cut the tail. Attach the earring nut. There’s lots of fun ideas and uses with this Post and Chain Earrings design. Wear them as dangle earrings or chain loop earrings.
