5 minute Earrings

5 minute Earrings

What you need

flat nosed pliers
2x 15mm beads
2x 5mm beads
2 earring loops
2 Head pins


These earrings would have the be the fastest earrings to make with practice your loop making will become easier and faster.

Thread the large bead and small bead onto the head pin and bend at a right angle.

Using the round nose pliers (or small cuticle scissors) grasp the bent head pin and twist it into a loop.

Slip eye of this loop onto the ear wire and continue to curl into a tight loop.

Once the loop is tight your earrings are secure enough to wear.

Obviously this is a very simple design, but it’s a great way to make a basic earring so you can afford a set for every outfit in your closet.
