(If you are looking for the Pearls, Pearls, Pearls Blog Hop, go HERE.)

I’ve been asked to get a tutorial up for these fun and colorful Boho-style earrings.

Simple and, hopefully, comprehensible !

So here goes…

With this advisory…be sure to count and recount the beads

on your wire to check your pattern BEFORE you finish

the  final wrapping!

A very painful lesson learned…

I like to mix matte colored seed beads with some shiny

or iridescent ones for visual contrast/interest.

The variations are endless!

    So cute and they look so different in the different colors, love the yellow pair.

  4. These are just super! I really like that last pair – they look so shimmery and summery! Thanks for the wonderful tutorial Lynda! I’ve made some pairs similar to these using silver wire but I’ll have to try the brass wire, it’s a bit more sturdy and stiff which would be perfect!
