What better way to welcome spring than with some new bling!!
I’ve teamed up with 6 awesome blogs to bring you 7 fabulous jewelry tutorials and 4 fun giveaways.
Adrianne and I will be starting the week with our tutorials.
Today I’m sharing coral and purple color block beaded earrings.
Now I have to admit that I struggle with mixing patterns and colors. I so wish I could do it but I never seem to like how it looks on me.
I also love purple! I wear it all the time and I recently saw on Pinterest a few purple and coral color block outfits. I realized that I could easily pull the look off if I just added a little coral when I wear all my favorite purple tops.
Want to make your own color block beaded earrings?
All you need are:
small beads in one color
teardrop beads in another color
chain or jump rings
round nose pliers
I found the coral beads at Walmart and the purple teardrop beads at Michael’s.
Step 1: Add headpins to the small beads and create loops using round nose pliers. I used a headpin for the teardrop beads also. Use the pliers to cut off the head of the pin, place wire through the opening and twist. Cut off one of the ends and create a loop with the other end.
Step 2: Add 2 links of chain or 2 jump rings to the earring hooks. Add the teardrop bead to the end
Step 3: Randomly add your small beads to the links.
That’s it! Now you have a beautiful pair of color block earrings to wear.
