Rosie Posie ~ DIY Glass Bead Earrings

Roses are absolutely stunning! Same goes for glass beads... put them together and you have a sure winner!
There's something about working with glass beads that's just so.. hmm what's the word.. oh yes!... It's just enchanting!Whenever I go overseas, or on holiday I always try to buy at least one glass bead from that area. Glass beads do tell stories! I have an amazing blue glass bead I actually bought in New Zealand while there, and every time I see it when looking through my beads, it brings back heaps of fond memories! :).. I feel so Victorian saying 'fond' for some reason haha
I made some earrings today with beautiful pink glass beads with the tiniest roses one the inside, and I adore them!

 

Supplies:
2x Pink Glass Beads
2x Earrings Hooks
2x Eye Pins
2x Swarovski Crystals
2x Small Silver Bead
4x Silver Bead Caps ~ I used 2 different types.
Round Nose Pliers
Chain Nose Pliers
Wire Cutters

Instructions:
Step 1~ Firstly I thread on the lower bead cap, then the pink glass bead, the higher bead  cap finishing of with the crystal or small silver bead.


Step 2~  I then clipped of the extra wire of the eye pins with my wire cutters before making a loop at the top with my round nose pliers.
Step 3~  With my chain nose pliers I attached the earring hooks to the loops I had just made at the top of the beaded earrings.

And you're done! I hope you all enjoyed that tutorial, if you have any questions, comment away!

I don't actually have all beads in the shop listed - one day maybe I will. Maybe I should send some to you for photography LOL. Hope you are well. See you next time you are in the shop. If anyone else wants the beads, just get them to email me at info@beadshack.com.au.

    Cheers
