The earrings I made today actually started out as a bathing suit. I removed all the beads and tassels because I was using the suit itself for another project that I will be showing soon. (something to look forward to!)
I thought the beads and tassels were pretty cool on their own so i didn't want to just throw them away. And so my earring project began. The other things i needed were artists wire, earring hooks, and wire cutter. Also judging by these photos i could have used a new camera too.
First I thread the wire through the tassel.
Next I strung the skull bead onto the wire.
I looped the earring hook through the wire and wrapped the wire around the base a few times to make sure it was secure. Then I cut off the extra wire.
Repeat these steps for the second earring and that's all there is to it!
This is what they look like on... Pretty fun huh?
