15 Minute Handmade Earrings {with a giveaway}

I found these gorgeous beads at Michael’s last week and fell in love with them immediately, so I did what every crafty gal does – I made some earrings!

You can’t go wrong with these earrings.  They are easy to make and you will love them.

Materials needed:

  • 2 headpins
  • 2 earring hooks
  • 2 beads
  • 2 hammered rings – mine came from links of a chain
  • Wire cutters
  • Round nose pliers
    Step 1:  Thread a bead onto your head pin and make a 90 degree bend just above your bead.  Use wire cutters to cut the wire, leaving about 1/3 of an inch.  Use your round nose pliers to create a loop.
    Step 2:  Use your pliers to gently open your earring hooks and the loop you just made.  Make sure you open the loops side to side (here is a great tutorial if I’ve confused you). 
    Step 3:  Attach your rings to each loop.   Close each loop and admire you fabulous new earrings!!
    Don’t you just love wearing new earrings?  I can’t wait to wear them and I’m pretty sure they coordinate perfectly with all my summer outfits:)
    Now I’m in the mood for a giveaway!!  
    I’m giving away a pair of earrings to TWO lucky winners.
