I’ve got another easy jewelry tutorial for you today. If you’ve never made your own earrings before, these would be the prefect pair to start with.
I was looking through my sweaters over the weekend and realized that I have a lot of pink and teal. I especially have a lot of dark pink sweaters from The Loft that I love wearing. So I decided I needed a new pair of pink and teal beaded earrings to match all my favorite sweaters. Plus these colors are sure to brighten up any cold, dreary day!
- 4 small beads
- 2 larger beads
- 2 earring hooks
- round nose pliers
Step 1: Thread your larger beads onto two seperate headpins. Create a loop by bending the wire right after the bead at a 90 degree angle. Cut excess wire leaving about a 1/4 inch of wire. Grab the end of the wire with your round nose pliers and bend into a circle.
Step 2: Cut end off of two head pins using your pliers. Create a loop using your round nose pliers. Thread a small bead on the wire. Create another loop. Repeat using left over wire for your three other small beads.
Step 3: Attach large bead and small beads to the earring hook. Repeat for second earring.
Rebecca from My Girlish Whims has a great tutorial for creating loops if you need to see a visual.
I promise that these are super easy to make and you will love wearing them.
What color beads would you use if you made these earrings? I’m thinking I need a pair of red and teal earrings.
