Introduction: How to Make Beaded Earrings

About: Currently a substitute teacher taking a break from working in the salon. love cooking and making crafty things

To make these earring you'll need:
Round nose pliers
2 Earring hooks
2 Head pins( they are wire with a flat end on the bottom so the beads don't fall off)
2 Matching medium sized beads(I used silver colored)
2 Beads slightly bigger than the medium sized ones.
A beading threaded needle
Many seed beads 

Step 1: Beading the Bead

Start out with the slightly bigger bead and the seed beads.  With the threaded needle first thread the bigger bead on and then enough seed beads to fit perfectly around the bead(I used 5) With the first beads tie a knot at the other end of the bead with the loose thread.  Keep threading beads on until the whole bead is covered. At the end tie the thread again so it stays together.

Step 2: Making the Earrings

Put the Beaded bead on a headpin and glue the bottom threads so it doesn't look messy.  Put the medium sized bead on next.  Make a loop with the round nose pliers.  Attach the earring hook onto the loop you just made. Now make a second earring Using the previous steps and you'll be all good to go!
