Cluster Earrings

by | DIY, Mixed Media

This may be one of the quickest projects I’ve ever done.  I think I completed it while waiting for the hubster to check his hair and put on his shoes before we left the house to run errands, so yeah, maybe 5 minutes.

5 Minute Jewelry - Cluster Earrings | One Dog Woof

Supplies:

beads
head pins
fish hook earring wires
round-nose jewelry pliers
wire-cutters
jump rings
I used the Martha Stewart beads and pliers, but of course any will work.

1. String up any number of beads on the head pins.  Cut off the extra wire, and twist the end into an eye.

2. Repeat this process for as many “strands” as you want on each earring.  As you can see, I only had 4 “strands” since I was limited by the number of beads.

3. Once all your “strands” are done, hook half of them onto a jump ring and attach to the hook earring.  Then repeat for the other earring to complete the set.

Super easy right?  And the best part is you can make the clusters as long and as full as you want!  I may try this with some of my leftover glass beads next time!

    So cute and fun! I’m in charge of planning an activity for the 12 year old girls in my church this week, and I was thinking they might like making some jewelry. This looks like a perfect project!

      Ha, no problem! I recognize it now :-). This would make a great group project. With a bunch of colored beads, each girl can choose their own style. I’d love to see how it goes if you decide to do it!
