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.
fish hook earring wires
round-nose jewelry pliers
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!
What a great looking pair of earrings! Great job!
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!
(Oops, on my husband’s account I see. This is Rachel, from Maybe Matilda 🙂
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!
Very cute project!
How cute are these!
Cute and fun, and I LOVE those little pink beads! Jewelry making is so relaxing to me and I love how fast some pieces come together. A win all the way around!!
