3 easy steps to make own earrings

HI all ,
Today I am going to show you a very easy way to make your own earrings.The method so simple that you can make a pair of earrings under 15 mins ( or even less) if you are good in handling tools

I call it the bead ,hoop and link method

STep 1 : Take a head pin, based on the length of the head pin we can insert 1 to 3 or max 4 beads into the head pin .In the pic below i have used a head pin which can accomodate 3 beads.

Step 2 : Leave enough free length of the head pin such that we can make a loop .Use your jewelry pliers to bend the head pin (last free length bit) to a right angle .then holding the tip of the bent ,make the loop
as shown below

Step 3 :
Now link this dangling piece to a ear hook
as shown below

easy peasy ! isnt it!

There you go one easy way to make handmade jewelry .

This is the most common way and also more versatile to make handmade earrings .

Again inserting too many beads into single head pin may not be ideal too.

The same method can be used in various combination of bead types ,colors .The earrings made thus will look more grogeous whenever bead caps or metallic spacers are used.

These are the earrings made using this method
