Sweetheart Earrings - Jewellery Making Tutorial

Difficulty: Beginner

Rating:

These simple earrings will have you looking pretty in pink in no time! We have re-imagined them with current 6mm round beads which are perfectly framed by the silver hearts. The beads can of course, be swapped out for your favourite colours to make them unique to you. Ready? Let's Get Creative! 

You can add all the items you need for the bracelet 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 Used List':

We believe that jewellery should be as individual as you are and so 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 creative imagination run wild and make your dream piece of jewellery?!
