Glass Bead Dangle Earrings

I got into my small glass beads last week and made some dangle earrings. These are fast and easy to make using six bead links and jump ring. Glass beads are so fun to wear!

citrine, red and green are 4x6mm faceted rondelle
clear crystal are 3x5mm faceted rondelle
aqua are 6mm faceted round 

fishhook earwire
5mm jump ring
5 - 1" 21ga headpins
1 - 2" 21ga headpin
11/0 clear seed beads
10 glass beads
jewelry making tools

(make two :)

I used one or two seed beads between the beads as shown.
This is the order that I placed them on the jump ring (see below).

Videos, tutorials and instructions on how to open a jump ring, earwire and make a loop are HERE.

I get ALL my jewelry tools, materials, supplies, beads, findings from Fire Mountain Gems.

I keep all my pin pieces that are 1" or longer. This was left from cutting the 2-inch headpin and perfect for making a bead charm.

This is the completed pair just in time for St. Patrick's Day!

Have a great week!
