Making earrings…

I finally had time to make some earrings using the felt balls, seed beads, and findings we have on our site. They are even easier to make than I thought they would be – and I thought they'd be very easy!

FYI – for those of you who have never heard of 'findings', they are the wires, hooks, chains and clasps that are used in jewelry making. We have just a few on our site – enough to get you started. If you really get into this, you may want to go to your local craft store or look for more online.

Here are some close-ups:

Earrings-2

Those are 2CM black felt balls with beads sewn to them. The bigger white beads and the b/w combination beads are ones I had in my stash.

This pair is made of two 2CM green felt balls and two 1CM or 1.5CM gold felt balls. The seed beads are the black iridescent and the crystal from our site.

I'm in the process of making a 'how-to' movie and I'll let you know when I get it uploaded.

  1. Becky, I’ve been making earrings for about 6 months now — whenever the urge strikes me I make a new pair. Takes about 10 minutes! What fun, and your felt balls are really fun! The earrings are really cute.

  2. Making dangling earring sure is a fun activity my friends and I are doing. We don’t have any idea about the design we’re going to make but the yours had given me one. This will serve as a little trinket or gift for our other friends. Thanks!
