Wirework & Glass Earring Beading Ideas
Showing all made usingand
I wanted to make a pair of fun earrings that would go anywhere…pool or dinner party. I started with the super cute rectangular sterling silver beads and added iridescent faceted black glass beads to the top and bottom. I strung them all together with a piece of Argentine half hard sterling silver wire and attached […]
These drop earrings started with the cute sterling silver bead caps. I paired them with the foiled glass purple beads and thought that looked nice. I did some wire work to attach them all together but they were still lacking something. I looked through my beads and found only two of the delicate faceted purple […]
I love working with wire, so in this piece I focused mainly on giving wire a different and modern shape. To make the pendants, I used gold tone wire and combined it with a 12 mm black glass bead. I strung one on an 18 inch gold plated ball chain for the necklace, and attached […]
This earring is a nice combination of wire, beads and chain. I used black color wire and attached a black chain to it, then I started working with beads using 4 mm black jet Swarovski crystals and 6 mm Czech red glass beads. These earrings are very suitable to wear with an evening gown.
The “chandelier” pieces in this design are actually elaborate bead caps taken from a Christmas tree ornament! I love to use findings in unusual and unexpected ways. When I found these sterling silver bead caps (at least that is what I think they are supposed to be) at a garage sale I picked them up […]
I love these blue agate stones, they are so beautiful and unique! The blue agate measures 12x18mm. They are accented by a clear faceted glass bead on top and a metal flower spacer beneath it. Earrings hang from sterling silver French earwires. They measure about 2″ from top to bottom.
I created these earrings using beads which I have only recently discovered through a friend – metalized ceramic. The discs are actually sterling silver plated ceramic, so they are lightweight and relatively cheaper than solid sterling silver beads. I combined the shiny silver with a simple black glass bead as this is always a classic […]
Yes, I know… the 60’s are over. But some might say that the era represented not just a time but a mindset… and couldn’t we use a little 60’s mindset right now? I know *I* could. I bought these little stamped brass flower charms awhile ago and the first incarnation featured small blackstone rondelles. This […]
These are really pretty dangly earrings that are made from Swarovski crystals, Bohemian Czech glass crystals and blue pearl beads. Each bead is individually wrapped with wire to make the fittings to hold it all together. They have great movement, and are very sparkly. I decided to do something a little different with earrings and […]
These earrings are crafted from up-cycled leather and fabric. I used stainless steel links to create a chain maille drop. Stainless steel is a hypoallergenic metal and gradually gleams with wear. The black beads are glass. For findings I use leverback hooks which are perfect for stretched ears as they secure tightly.
