These are super quick and easy earrings which can be adapted in many ways. Why not switch the head pins for eye pins and attach tassels or charms to the bottom? Or Switch the head pins for ball pins and the seed beads for seamless rounds from the findings kit for a more metallised finish? The choice is yours and we would love to see your adaptations. Ready? Let's get creative!

TIP: Straighten your Head or Eye Pins before you start

You can add all the items you need to your basket by clicking the box in the 'Products used' section above, or you can let your imagination run wild and choose your own materials from the links below. Please note that the colours for the products illustrated in the image above may not match the 'Products List'. 

Remember - our tutorials are for inspiration and learning purposes. They include links to the relevant categories for you to choose your own colour combinations and we positively encourage you to experiment with different shapes, sizes, finishes, composition and texture. Why not choose your own beads and colours to achieve something in your own style? Let your imagination run wild and make your dream piece of jewellery.
