Illustrated Craft Tutorial - How to Make Beaded Earrings

This technique is easy to learn to create all sorts of earrings to match all of your clothes.



Beaded Earrings 1

1. First of all, cut two 4 inch pieces of  perlon thread. Insert both threads together through the loop of the earring hook and match all of the lengths (you have 4 ends now). Insert all ends through a crimping bead and pull the bead to the top as seen in the picture.

2. Pinch or crimp the bead with your pliers to secure it from sliding down.

6. Continue in this manner again by adding a bead of your choice and follow the bead with a crimping bead to hold in place.

Continue until 3-5 beads are used up. Finish off with a crimping bead.

7. Start adding a bead and crimping bead to the second thread. Try to use a different order of beads so the earrings look interesting.
