Falling in Love Earrings

$15 or less

About this design:

For these budget friendly statement earrings, I made clusters of Czech glass bead charms and attached a pearl heart to the bottom for the perfect Valentines Day accessory!

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • Headpins
  • Jump Rings
  • Earwires
  • Czech Glass
  • Mother of Pearl Hearts

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Use the headpins & Czech glass to make the bead charms- I ended up making about 25 per earring, but you can add more or less depending on how full you'd like the cluster to look.
Step 2:
Cut a piece of chain a little less than 1" long. Attach jump rings holding 2-3 bead charms along the chain. Make a bead charm with the pearl heart & attach to the bottom of the chain with a jump ring. Attach a jump ring to the top of the chain and slide an earwire onto the jump ring. I also attached some of the bead charms to this jump ring as well.

    Eliana, great pair of earrings! The soft colored clustered beads remind me of fringe and look wonderful with the pearl heart beads. I really like the textural effect they add. I have got to try this technique!
