Up “Balloon” earring Tutorial

on February 22, 2013

Hi guys, Friday is here and with that comes the last of my Up projects for Valentine’s day. This project is actually a cluster style earring that I made to match the dress I bought for Valentine’s day and the Adventure is out there/grape soda badge necklace.

Since I already had the house and the balloons and my dress had multiple colors, I decided to make some colorful cluster earrings to simulate the look of a bunch of balloons.

Here is what you will need

supplies

Supplies

  • Beads of your choice (I used 9 for each since these were large beads, but you can use as many as you chose depending on the length you want to achieve)
  • eye pins (one for each bead)
  • Jump rings (one for first bead and one for every two after)
  • needle nose pliers
  • earring posts

Step one

string eye pin through bead and create loop at top, secure and cut off excess.

Continue this until all beads have been done.

step1

Step two

Add Jump ring to first bead (this will be the bead at the bottom of your earring)step2

Step three

Add two beads to another jump ring  and attach it to the  first jump ring.step3

Step Four

continue adding two beads to jump ring and attaching them to the jump ring before until you reach desired length. Then add to earring post.

Repeat steps 1-4 on other earring and that’s it!

Here are the finished product!
