Method

Step 1 First, cut a length of 3 inches of silver wire with the cutting pliers.

Step 2 Then use the round nose pliers to make a loop at one end of the silver wire, and twist the wire around with the flat jaws pliers.

Step 3 Mount the beads (silver and diamonds) on the silver wire, starting with a larger cubic diamond (mine is a yellow). You can then alternate diamond beads (mine are pink) and silver beads as you wish to make your own design.
