I decided to try and make a simple pair of pearl earrings using wires finished with the distal end cutters. I cut two pieces of wire about two inches long using the distal end cutters. That resulted in a finished paddle end on one side. I used pearls that just fit on the wire which was 24g. I bent the wire just above the pearl to limit their ability to slide around. Finally, I used a marker to create the loop of the ear wire. The result is a fabulous, albeit simple, pair of earrings in less than 5 minutes!
One other thing to note is that I used 'German Silver Style' wire by Beadalon. It has a copper core - which is not at all evident in the finished earrings.
