Easy Beaded Earring Tutorial

Making beaded earrings is really simple!  Once you get the basics down, you can play around and create lots of different ones.  I am going to show you a basic earring today.

Step 1:  Gather your supplies.  You will need pliers (these are an all-in-one tool).  2 head pins, 2 hook and eye clasps, 2 beads.  For beads, I chose ones that were a thin disc-like shape.

Step 2:  Run the head pin through your bead.

Step 3:  Bend the top part of the head pin back to a 90 degree angle with the bead.  Then using your wire cutter, cut off the excess wire.

Step 4:  Using your your needle nose pliers, bend the top part of the head pin back up creating a hook like the one above.

Step 5:  Slide the hook and eye clasp onto the hook you just made.  Using the needle nose pliers, secure it so the hook and eye clasp does not fall out.

One earring done, now just repeat the process!!
