A few weeks ago I decided to make a pair of beaded earrings after seeing these earrings at Lines Across and, as per usual, one pair turned into many pairs. They are quite easy to make and I think the photos explain it better than I can with words but I’m going to try.
First, place your beads on your headpin. Cut the headpin, leaving just enough metal to make the loop using round nose pliers. Use flat nose pliers to open a jump ring and attach the earring to the beaded headpin. Repeat for the second earring. Done!
Aren’t they fun? Right now they’re for sale in my (completely unsuccessful) etsy shop but I plan to make more that match some of my favourite outfits.
