Fun Beaded Earrings Jewelry Making Project with Emerald Swarovski BeadsFun Beaded Earrings Jewelry Making Project with Montana Swarovski BeadsWe call this jewelry making project "Fun Earrings".  These earrings were given this name by Jessica Garrison at the Tucson bead show.  Her comment when first seeing these earrings was "Those are fun", hence the name. 

This is a quick, delicate earring project that can be made with 8 inches of 20 gauge 1/2 hard round wire and three 4mm beads or two 4mm beads and one 6mm bead.  These earrings use a post style of connection and therefore require an ear clutch to hold the earrings on.  The earrings are approximately 1 1/8" tall.  The pictures shown here are slightly larger Alternative Design for Fun Beaded Earrings Jewelry Making Projectthan the actual earrings.
