Bead Star Earrings

We found this picture on pinterest with no instructions – but it’s too beautiful to not post. The concept is well photographed and looks simple enough to give it a try.

You’ll need:

  • 10 dark blue beads in 2 sizes
  • 10 light blue beads in the larger size
  • 15 clear beads in the smaller size
  • Silver jewelry wire
  • Silver earring findings – your choice

Following the picture; wire the dark blue beads alternating size. Add the star’s spokes, or petals, one at a time as in the middle photo. When all the spokes are attached, secure the wire and add your earring parts – lovely!

Think about trying different color combinations to match different outfits – and make a third star to add to a chain for a complete set!
