Sometimes we forget that beautiful doesn't always have to be complicated. Today I will show you how to make beaded earrings - two pairs! You decide which ones you like more or just like me, you will go crazy and make two pairs;). It took me less than 10 minutes to make them, and I wear them all day. I invite you to the jewellery making tutorial for beginners.

As I am a huge fan of earrings, I have a huge collection. More than one jewellery and accessories shop would envy me with such a number of pairs. There are earrings in all colours, made with various techniques. Even if I do not understand, for example, soutache and macrame, I have talented friends who can help me. But not all the earrings I love are fancy and hard to make. It turns out that I like to wear the quickest ones, such as those shown in this tutorial the most :). 

Materials needed;

For the second pair of earrings;

Please note that the colours for the products illustrated in the image above may not match the 'Products List'. 

Step 1

Place the CrystaLove and Candy beads alternately on two eyepins, separating them with silver rounds.

Step 1

Step 2

Cut off the excess wire and fold loops. It is important that the loops on one eyepin are turned towards each other perpendicularly as in the photo.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Put 3 dagger beads and 4 silver rounds alternately on the next eyepin. 

Step 1

Step 4

Now use the pliers to bend the wire into a "V" just behind the silver round. 

Step 1

Step 5

Put another 4 dagger beads and 4 silver rounds alternately on the eyepin. Cut off the excess wire, leaving enough to make a nice eye. I recommend doing two such parts at once. It is easier then to check if our bead "V" is the same for both earrings.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 6

We connect all the elements of the first earring. First, we put a jump ring on the earwire and add our two simple eyepins with beads to the jump ring. Then we put the prepared "V" on the ends and it's ready!

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 7

For the second pair of earrings;
We prepare 3 lengths of chain for one earring.
2 short, 2 longer and one longest.

Step 1

Step 8

We put the chains alternating with beads on the eyepin. We put the chains between the beads. The longest chain will be at the centre. Cut the excess wire so that there is enough to make a mesh. We bend the hook into a light arch.

Step 1

Step 9

Cut two chains of equal length. I cut it to 15 links.

Step 1

Step 10

We put the chains on the loops of our eyepin with beads. We thread one Candy bead on a separate eyepin, cut it and put one eyelet on the earwire, bend the other and put on them the ends of two chains from the base.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 11

Put one Candy bead on 5 ball pins, cut them, make loops and mount one bead to each dangling chain.

Step 3

Step 12

Both pairs of earrings are so cool that you can go crazy with combinations of beads, use different shapes, colours and sizes. You will achieve a different end result each time. I am curious about your ideas. Be sure to share them on our Facebook page - we would love to see your work :).
