Macaron Felt Earrings

About this design:

I wanted to make a design out of felt that was modern and wearable. These earrings are light-weight and the colors are really pretty together.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

You will need 20 gauge wire, (2) of each color listed below of 10mm felt balls, nugget crystal, 8/0 seed beads, and ear wire.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Cut about 4" of wire and create a loop with round nose pliers on one end. Start sliding on your beads and felt in the order you would like. I cut my wire at a sharp angle on the end so the felt goes on easier.
Step 2:
Once you have all of your beads on adjust the wire to the size you would like the earring, then trim some off. Next, I turn the first loop up with my pliers. Now I wire wrap the wire end with no loop around the base of the first loop two or three times. Trim off any excess wire and attach to your ear wire.
