What's Better Than Six Beaded Earring Projects? Six FREE Beaded Earring Projects!
Beaded earrings don't have to match a bracelet or a necklace. In fact, when I wear earrings I prefer them to be statements all by themselves. Beaded earrings are like little miniature works of beadwoven art. And once you get started, they really are addicting – make one pair and you won't be able to stop!
Looking at all the gorgeous earring designs available in the Beading Daily Shop and on Beading Daily made me think about some of the reasons I love beaded earrings:
1. Beaded earrings are (usually) easier to wear than a large statement necklace or bracelet. Most of the time, if an earring is done right, you won't even know that it's there.
2. Beaded earrings are great projects for beginners because they don't have to take a lot of materials or time. You can make a gorgeous pair of beaded earrings using just a few special beads in just a couple of hours.
3. Learning a new technique can sometimes be easier if you try it by making a pair of beaded earrings.
