One of my favorite things to make is jewelry.
Purple is my favorite color so when I found these ombre beads at AC Moore I couldn’t wait to get home and make something out of them.
All you need to make your own ombre earrings are:
3 different colored teardrop beads
round nose pliers
headpins or wire
Step 1: Add jump rings to each bead. Use headpins to create loops on larger beads.
Step 2: Separate your chain so you have two pieces with 5 links.
Step 3: Add earring hooks to one end of the chain
Step 4: Add two light beads to the first link of the chain right under the earring hook. Add two more light beads to the second link.
Step 5: Continue adding two beads to each link until you have your desired length. Then add the darkest bead to the last link (you will have 3 beads on the last link).
Step 6: Put on your new earrings and admire yourself in the mirror (because that is what you will want to do).
So what do you think?
Simple enough! Trust me – if I can do it, you can definitely do it!!
I would love for you to come visit me over at Happy Go Lucky and say “hi”!
