faceted bead drop earrings

Make simple drop earrings with faceted glass beads. Dangle a tiny matte metal charm to contrast the finish for a trendy look.
Step 1

Make a bead link from a rectangle, faceted glass bead. To do this, slide a bead onto an eye pin. Bend the wire of the eye pin in a 90° angle just above the bead. Grasp the eye pin wire, about 3/8"-½" [0.3 cm-1.3 cm] from the bend, between the jaws of your round nose pliers. Rotate the pliers toward you, keeping a firm grip on the wire, until a small loop is formed. Trim excess wire.

Step 2

Carefully open the loop on one end of your bead link and add a tiny matte circle charm. Close the loop.

Step 3

Carefully open the loop on the other end and attach to the loop on the V-shape ear wires. Close the loop.

Step 4

Repeat Steps 1-3 for a second earring.
