I love these earrings. I have no idea what to call them, but I love them. Cluster earrings? Beads-wrapped-together earrings? It's reminiscent of my bead soup earrings but instead of dangling, they're on one wire.
I used one large rondelle & a handful of small beads. I needed a bit of wire, a stud, and a headpin. The beads were a random selection of shapes & colors I liked together.
I started with this small black and white bead.
I squeezed the middle, crossed the ends & grabbed it with my pliers. I twisted the wire.
Now, on either side of the bead I added my other beads.
When I was done adding them, I snipped the ends to make loops. I like how you can manipulate the shape & how the beads face and lean due to the wire.
I strung the green bead on a headpin and added it to the bottom loop.
Now for the top.
I slipped on the charm and the stud.
