Earrings with colourful bead clusters

You need the following DIY materials to make these colourful earrings:

For these earrings we used a random mix of various semi-precious stone beads.

First, you thread each bead on a headpin. Next, you shape a loop and make windings over every beads. For more detailed instructions, please read our DIY guide on how to shape a loop over a bead.

Fasten a jumpring to the first bead with a diameter of 8mm.

 

After that, you connect 2 beads with a diameter of 6mm to the first bead:

Open the jumpring. Insert the first 6mm bead, then the 8mm bead on the jumpring and finally the second 6mm bead. Close the jumpring.

Now you attach the next 2 beads. You do it in the same way with the help of a jumpring:

Open the jumpring. Insert one bead, then the previous jumpring and then the second bead. Close the jumpring.

Continue this way adding two beads at a time with the help of a jumpring. When you have added 8 beads with a diameter of 6mm, you add 2 beads with a diameter of 4mm.

You this in the same way.

Now you fasten the last 2 beads with a diameter of 4mm. Open the eyelet on the earwire and insert the first bead.
 


Then you insert the bead cluster hanging on the jumpring you added last.
 


Finally, you add the last 4mm bead and close the eyelet.

Your cluster earrings are done.
