If you think you can’t make beaded earrings, I have something to show you today that’s going to blow your mind. Not only CAN you, but I found a pair of earring frames that not only make it easy, but you can also change the beads up to match different outfits! Let me show you how to make the easiest beaded earrings ever:
I found these awesome earring frames at Goody Beads on my last shopping trip. I’m going to link to the beads here in case you’re interested in buying a pair of frames for yourself. These are affiliate links, which means that when you buy through this link, it supports my blog at no extra cost to you. And what that means is that I can find more amazing jewelry supplies and share more free designs with you. :)
Here’s what you will need to make these easy earrings in a minute or less (and yes, I’m serious!)
- 28 mm round silver earring frames – these come with the ear wires attached, so you don’t need tools
- 6 mm bicone crystal beads – these are light amethyst with an AB finish
All you have to do is open it, add the beads, and close it back up. The inner bar is 24 mm, so you can fit 4 beads on, or mix and match with any other shape or size beads for a different look!
If you are sure you love the beads you add and don’t ever want to change them, a tiny dot of jewelry glue (or super glue) at the opening on the frame will ensure that you never lose the beads after lots of wear. The hinge does close securely, but because it’s not a permanent closure, there’s always that possibility that it could open sometime down the line. After all, it’s what makes it easy to make, and easy to change anytime!
