I wanted to call these earrings "Grandfather's Beard" since that is what they look like to me, but the boss protested that women won't relate to that name.  Hence they are now Beaded Swag Earrings. 

This jewelry project is relatively easy to make.  On the last page of this series, we will provide several alternative configurations that can be made from this same basic design.

This WigJig jewelry project is provided as part of WigJig University - College of Jewelry Designs.  We try to provide interesting jewelry projects using beads, jewelry wire and other jewelry supplies.  We hope that these pictures will provide you enough information for you to complete this project.  Some of the skills and techniques have not been discussed here.  For beginners, we suggest that you visit our Beginners Start Here pages. These pages discuss the skills necessary for making jewelry in the detail that beginners need. We also suggest that beginners to jewelry making might need to visit the WigJig University College of Jewelry Techniques for additional information about some of the skills and techniques shown. 

 Most, but not all of the jewelry supplies shown here can be purchased in our WigJig store.  We try to have a complete selection of jewelry supplies in our store including chain, wire, glass beads, findings, watches, tools, etc.
