Making a Pair of Earrings from Extra Beads

Jewelry and I get along pretty well, and I especially like necklace and earring sets.  I am not a big fan of bracelets or rings, though, because they bother my hands during the day.  (It’s REALLY annoying to hear the clack-clack when I am typing!)  So I try to figure out ways to make sets even if I don’t have a set, like this lone necklace.

Put a bunch of beads onto a straight pin.  You can easily find entire bead-making packages at Michel’s.

Bend at the top, leaving some room for a swing.

Using the pair of pliers as a guide, wrap the straight pin around the head of the pliers.  Sorry for the blurry picture!!
