Sun Kissed Drop Earrings

About this design:

For these drop earrings, I paired some of these new African beads with thread wrapped beads. I love all of the colors & textures and the simple, wearable design. They'll be sure to add a fun pop of color to any outfit!

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • Thread Wrapped Beads
  • African Recycled Glass Donut
  • African Glass Aqua Rondelle
  • Gold Triangle Charm
  • Czech Glass Gold Spacer
  • 22 or 24 Gauge Gold Wire

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
With 24 or 22 gauge wire, create a bead link (with the triangle charm attached on one end) by sliding on a gold spacer, an aqua bead, another spacer, the orange donut, the thread bead, and another spacer. Slide onto the loop of the earwire.
