I love handmade jewelry!! 
Today I’m sharing an easy pair of handmade ombre earrings.  
I shared these over at Love Grows Wild a couple weeks ago and wanted to share them with you because I love how they turned out.

They really are easy to make.  I promise!
purple ombre beads

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:
22 teardrop beads in 3 – 4 different colors
chain
jump rings
earring hooks
round nose pliers
headpins or wire
 
Purple Ombre Earrings
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, right?!  Trust me – if I can do it, you can definitely do it!!
And, since I love to give things away as much as I love making jewelry, I’m giving away a pair of these earrings.

  1. I would love to learn how to make jewellery, but I worry that my patience (or lack thereof) would get the best of me. Thank you for the tutorial. I feel as though I could actually give it a go! πŸ™‚

  2. Oh my. I bought earring things at hobby lobby the other day. I don’t make jewelry…it’s you! Your fault! I don’t have any beads though. I was going to hang weird stuff like soda tabs…the little girls would like it. If hubby has to build me a jewelry room he’s gonna be mad! No more jewelry DIY!!! I can’t afford another habit…

    Super cute Kara:)

  9. Aw, this was an incredibly good post. Finding the time and actual effort to produce a
    superb article… but what can I say… I hesitate a lot and don’t seem to get nearly anything done.
