With chain nose pliers grip the side of the loop that is not attached to the main ear wire. Twist the pliers toward you slightly, opening up the loop a little. Thread your chosen wired bead or charm onto the opened loop, grip it once more with chain nose pliers and then twist the pliers away from you to close the loop.
