Lesley here with you today and I'm going to try and convince you to make jewelry. I was always intimidated when it came to jewelry, because I didn't know the first thing about it. After my friend started making it and selling it, and I took a hard look at how she put it together, I realized that it's pretty doable! All you need besides the beads is a couple tools and the basics like jump rings, head pins, earring loops.
I shot a video for you today on making the above pair of earrings. Below are the beads and findings I needed to make these earrings, all organized in the Small Zip Bags from Simply Renee.
And here they are hanging from my 36" Ribbon Organizer!
And here is a video, made just for you!
In case you need some close ups of the looping of the head pin, here are steps 1 - 3.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and try making jewelry sometime! If you already make jewelry, now might be a good time to think about a Clip-It-Up for storage. Think about Zip Bags for your crimp beads, jump rings, eye pins, wiring, clasps and toggles, not to mention seeing all your beautiful beads and pendants.
It's Christmas, and we want one of you to have these earrings. Please leave a comment on this post and we'll pick a winner. If you also leave a post on my blog (earring post), you'll get an extra chance to win! Hopefully, you'll get them in time for Christmas morning!
I'll announce the winner on my blog this Friday, so you have 2 days to leave some comments.
Bye for now.
