Cut 8 ½ inches of wire and use the nylon jaw pliers to straighten the wire.

We’ll start at the top of the tree by making a loop at the end of the wire, the loop should face the left.

With the rest of the wire, start making the tree loop by loop beginning from the left.  Place the wire in the middle of the round nose pliers and from the left pull the wire over the front of the wire tree to make the first loop.  Then take it over to the right side and pull the wire over the pliers toward the back of the tree.

Continue the pattern, gradually increasing the width of the tree with each loop.

Make 4 loops down each side.

After the 4th loop on the right side, start your coil at the end of the wire by making a small loop with the round nose pliers.

Take the chain nose pliers, hold the loop and start turning by using your thumb to gradually create your coil.

Attach an eye pin to the top of the tree, slip on a 4mm bicone and then make another loop on the other side of the bicone.  Trim off the excess and then attach the ear wire.
Repeat for the other side of the earring.
