Vogue Thread Wrapped Earrings

About this design:

I bet you are seeing these trendy earrings all over the place. We just love how lightweight they are, allowing you to make a bold statement without feeling the pull on your ears. You can go for a dramatic mix of colors, a graduation of color, or even metallic when selecting your combination for this style earring.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • 4x 14mm thread wrapped beads
  • 2x 18mm thread wrapped beads
  • 2x leverback earrings
  • 2x headpins
  • 4x 3" cuts of 20ga-24ga wire

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
I like working from the bottom up on earrings. Start by stringing your headpin: bead cap - 18mm bead - bead cap. Then create a wire wrap loop. Try to keep the loop snug to your bead cap, this will secure the placement of the caps against the bead so they don't shift around too much. You could also try dabbing a touch of adhesive onto the underside of the caps, prior to placing against the thread-wrapped bead.
Finish your earring design by creating and linking together 2 wire wrapped links using the same bead caps, but with the 14mm beads. Don't forget to loop the first one onto your larger thread bead charm!

    I just saw all the new products this week. Y’all got in some very exciting pieces! Love these fiber wrapped beads. Your earring design is so cute! I think I need to make myself some clip on earrings. If they’re lightweight enough, they should work fine. The colors look perfect for Spring & Summer.
    I also love the variety of African beads. Funky jewelry just waiting to happen!

    Love these! I’ve seen some at my fav French store that begins with a T. I didn’t like theirs as the thread was loose and pulling apart. This way I know I am getting quality that I can personalize for me. I do wish LB would get in some Chihuahua charms.

    Ali, another winner as usual. Love these! I noticed the bead cap wasn’t listed among the components needed. So we just find any flat-ish bead cap about what size?? Thanks! These lovely round beads would also make cool bangles or stretch bracelets!
