My friend who is a weaver gave me this large tassel she made with the full knowledge that I would be snipping pieces off of it to make jewelry. (If you have noticed the white sparkles–it was snowing when I took this picture.)
For my Festive Earrings Tutorial today, that is just what I did.
Here is what you will need to make a pair something like these.
2 Ceramic Art Beads
2 Three to One Connectors
4 Copper Crimp covers 3.5mm
1 Pair of ear wires
2 5 inch strands of novlety yarn of your choice
2 pieces of balled end copper 20 gauge wire 8 inches long
2 silver or copper round metal heishi beads
2 4-5 mm round copper beads
I began by stringing the strands of novelty yarn through the 1st and 3rd loops of the Three to One Connector.
I secured the yarn with the copper crimp covers.
3.5 copper crimp bead covers from Rings and Things.com
Once I had the novelty yarn secured, I used the copper balled end wires to make wrapped loops on each of the art beads. I attached them with the heishi and the copper beads. I then attached the ear wires through the top loop on the 3:1 connectors and was finished.
I think these earrings will be fun to wear to a New Year’s Eve party!! They are colorful and bold and will help bring in the New Year with pizzazz!!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
