Leafy Green Earrings Tutorial


This is my first jewelry tutorial, so bear with me. Jewelry making is my new passion, and I consider myself a jack of all trades, master of none (hah)! I’ve been self-teaching and I started making some custom jewelry for a few craft fairs I’m going to do with my mother, so I thought I’d share some of what I’ve come up with. I hope you like!

Step 1: Attach a jump ring to each of the leaf beads.

Step 2: Attach a second jump ring to the first (or you could do 2 chain links). I added the second one to make the leaf face forward when the earrings are worn. So if this isn’t a problem with your bead, you can skip this step. Attach the jump ring to the ear wire.

 Step 3: Add the Swarovski crystals to the head pins.

 Step 4: Use the chain nose pliers to bend the head pins and create a loop at the top.

Step 5: Attach one Swarovski crystal on either side of the leaf. I ended up adding mine on the loop formed by the earring wire, because I didn’t want them dangling too low and blocking the pretty leaves, but that’s just my preference.

    very crafty! Thanks for joining the Frugal Tuesday Tip. Do you find making jewelry less expensive than buying ready-made jewelry? http://juliecache.com/2011/07/18/frugal-tuesday-tip-and-a-winner

  6. I use the 50% off coupons at the craft stores, which makes them cheaper. Otherwise, ya really gotta watch and add up the materials!

    Cute earrings. Jewelry making is not something I have tried. I may have to because it does not look too hard.
