Does making earrings sound difficult and complicated? It doesn’t have to be! Today I’m making some super easy earrings from little glittered foam balls. These little sparkly spheres came from a bag of bowl/vase filler from the craft store (found in the decorating aisle)! Don’t fret if you don’t have these exact “beads.” You can use any type of large bead instead.
*A note about jewelry pliers: The round nose pliers are necessary for bending the headpins and wire. The flat nose pliers are for holding, bending, and cinching. You could use regular needle nose pliers with teeth, but just be cautious that the teeth can leave marks and indentations on your jewelry. Yuck.
**When it comes to selecting the size/length of jewelry findings, there is a smorgasbord of options. You can choose whatever like depending on the style and type of earring you wish to make. I used 1.5″ long headpins that are 0.021″ thick.
