My mum gave me a selection of beads a few weeks back to turn into earrings for her, and I finally got around to it yesterday!
I recently discovered a beading technique called peyote, an off-loom bead weaving stitch. It’s actually the free-form version which caught my eye, but thought I had better start somewhere a little easier! I found some wonderful free instructions by Jill Wiseman (link below) and created these beauties for my mum’s 70th birthday.
A short while ago I was asked by a friend to make two pairs of dolphin earrings, and having several charms left over made some for my shop too.
On my last trip to visit the folks, I bought a selection of metal charms with the idea of turning them into earrings. Here are the finished items.
I thought I would have a go at making a pair of hoop earrings using a piece of memory wire and various gothy looking beads and charms. I’m really pleased with the result and know just the person to give them to!
I’ve been a busy bee again today and made lots of new things! I had a go at making earrings from buttons, and am very pleased with the results. I also made some earrings using polymer clay flower beads, which are very cute.
A bit of skull related jewellery making before bedtime last night! I made some skull bag charms, and skull and eyeball earrings.
I thought it would be nice to make some smaller earrings for a change, so came up with this selection. The bead sections measure about 1cm long and feature a selection of pearly beads, faceted glass crystal beads and rhinestone beads in various colours.
I love these faceted teardrop crystal beads, and have made one pair of earrings per colour to add to my shop.
I’ve just added several new pairs of newly made earrings to my shop, as well as updating a few of my older designs I wasn’t happy with.
These iridescent marbled beads are just wonderful. I have created four pairs of earrings with them.
Here are some earrings I made for my mummy during her visit at the beginning of the month. She was most pleased with them and we had a fun time playing with all my beads too!
I received my wire coiling gizmo today. No instructions, so after a bit of research on the internet I had a go at making a pair of earrings and am quite pleased with the results for a first try. I’m looking forward to experimenting with ideas now!
I’ve just added eighteen pairs of newly made earrings to my shop.

I’ve decided to take a stab at making earrings, and am most pleased with the results. Made from a selection of glass, metal and other beads, and measure between 4-5cm (including hooks).
