Simple Earrings



Sometimes you just have to simplify to get stunning results and when I received these beautiful teardrop shell beads from Wholeport I knew I wanted to show off their beauty.

So I decided to make some simple earrings.

Supplies:
  • Beads
  • Headpins
  • Earring hooks
  • Jump rings



Thread the bead onto the headpin.


Bend the bead 90 degrees to one side.


Then using a pair of needle nosed pliers loop it around in the opposite directions.


Using a jump ring attach them to the earring hooks.




DIY Delight or Disaster? I love these beads I think they are just so pretty and stunning on their own so I'm going with delight. Don't forget to checkout the rest of Wholeport's bead range here.
