Crochet Bead Earrings - Xmas Gifts Making

Are you ready for some lovely gifts making?
Join me in making these sweet earrings.
What you need:
* crocheted beads - 2 cm big or other size but you have to use adequate pin
{you can buy these at the jewelry supply / craft store} or make them yourself using this tutorial.
* 6 pearl beads /size 1 cm
* 10 pearl bead caps and 2 bigger flowery caps
* 6 eye pins
* 4 jump rings and
* 2 earring hooks
Nose pliers also necessary.
Step 1: String /Pin your beads
Don't let the picture misguide you. These are ordinary pins, but for our earrings you need eye pins. Take an eye pin, slide the bead cap, slide the pearl bead, add another cap, then take the nose pliers and fold the pin to make an eye. One pearl bead pinned and capped. Make another one.
Step 2: Join the beads
Join the beads with a jump ring. Attach an eye pin to one of the pearl beads.
Step 3: String the crochet bead
With eye pin attached, slide in the bigger (floral or whatever you find/have) bead cap, slide in the crochet bead. Holding the whole thing tightly, add the pearl bead, cap it and use the pliers to make an eye.
Step 4: Finish it up
Next, attach a jump ring and the earring hook and your earring is done! I don't think it can get easier than this!
Make the second earring.
Do you like them? You can whip them up if in need of a last (or not) minute gift and they surely make a fantastic stocking filler.
You can experiment with larger / different size beads and caps to get a variety of designs.

Don't forget to visit us on Wednesday for we'll be making a flower beaded necklace!

Thank you Divya! If you can believe, I have never ever bought already crocheted beads and I am sure they make everything a lot easier!

So very pretty! I have a big collection of earrings and always loved wearing them until the hole in my left ear became a slit and now anything I put in my ears feels like my ears will be pulled off.
