tweet pink earrings

When you start with earring findings as cute as these it doesn’t take much to make a really nice pair of earrings. Just add a few bead dangles and ear wires.

I can’t seem to find where I purchased these findings but here are some really cute chandelier findings at ArtBeads.com.

An ombré blend of crystals makes them especially interesting. Because most of the work is already done for you with the findings it’s just simply stringing beads on the head pins and making loops, so these earrings go together very quickly.

Enjoy the video and happy creating!

You can watch the Tweet Pinks Earrings Video Tutorial over at YouTube.
