Earring Making: Almost Instant Gratification

Oh, yes, even though I always seem to have a hard time coming up with designs for beaded earrings, I love to stitch up earring making projects from other talented beading designers! I really can't get enough of them — earring making projects are great for last-minute gifts, or when I just need a quick project to pick up a tired outfit, I love the way beaded earrings can change things up with ease.

Want a peek at three of my favorite earring making projects from the awesome eBook, Best of Beadwork: 12 Romantic Projects?

Nancy Cain's Pearl Romance necklace uses clever and sophisticated little peyote-stitched bead caps to transform a strand of ordinary crystal pearls into a fantastic and fabulous piece of beaded neckwear. But if you don't have time to make the whole necklace, stitching up just a couple of the bead caps will leave you with a pair of fancy, flirty beaded earrings!
Lisa Kan's beadwork just reeks of romanticism, and her Marrakech Earrings are a beautiful and clever combination of herringbone stitch, peyote stitch, and netting. Tiny cube earrings and crystal bicones make these earrings perfect for both the office and date night.
Marcia DeCoster's Little Black Dress earrings work up in a snap, and can add some serious glam to your favorite outfits. Substitute top-drilled gemstone drops or shorter briolettes to completely change up the look of these beautiful beaded earrings.

I've always thought that earring making is the next best thing to instant gratification when it comes to beading projects. If you love these three earring making projects, you can get all of them plus nine more beaded necklace and bracelet projects in The Best of Beadwork: 12 Romantic Projects. Taken straight from the pages of Beadwork magazine, you'll find romantic beading projects from some of your favorite designers like Laura McCabe, Cynthia Rutledge, and Melanie Potter. You can download your copy of The Best of Beadwork: 12 Romantic Beading Projects instantly onto your desktop or laptop computer, and be beading in just minutes!
