With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I wanted to share some Mother’s Day gift ideas. Why not make her something personal like a pair earrings handmade by you?
All products and tools can be purchased from Beads Direct
To make these lily earrings you will need:
2x Ball head Headpins
2x 6mm Freshwater Pearls or
2x 6mm SWAROVSKI Elements pearls
1 pair of Sterling Silver Earwires
1x Silver plated lily bead cap
For a cheaper alternative, you can use silver-plated earwires but if the person you’re making these earrings for has sensitive skin, I would always recommend using sterling silver findings.
1x Round nose pliers
1x Snipe or Flat nose pliers
Step 1.Thread the pearl bead on to the headpin and then thread through the lily
Step 2. Make a head pin loop by pulling the headpin back, make a loop with the round nose pliers and wrap the remainder of the pin around the loop with the flat nose pliers
Step 3. Slightly open up the loop of the earrings wires and attach to the headpin loop
That’s how simple it is to make.
If you have any questions, leave a comment 🙂
