How many times have you gone shopping for a special event - whether that's a wedding, reunion, night out with the girls, or that special date night? Lots right? You know that the odds of finding that perfect outfit in an hour are slim to none. Instead, you usually spend the day trying to find the right combo. You may find a great top and pants or skirt at one place but no jacket or shoes. So the hunt goes on. After a few hours, and a stop for a latte, you finally have the perfect outfit - except for one thing - the accessories. It's rare that you can find the perfect earrings to go with an outfit. Usually you compromise - something that's not quite right. So why not make your own?

Making earrings are an easy way to transform your look and so simple to do. And because it's a small item, you can afford to splurge on some of the best materials for your own jewelry - silver or gold ear wires and Swarovski crystals.

Materials

Silver ear wires (2)

Silver eye pins

Silver head pins

Swarovski crystals or beads in a variety of shapes/colors

Two Pairs of Round Nose Pliers or Round Nose and Flat Nose

How to Choose Your Beads

Basically what you'll be doing is creating dangle earrings so think about how you want this to look while you're in the bead store. You'll use the eye pin as the major part of your earring. You'll stack different sized beads on top of this eye pin. You may like the graduated look and try a 6 millimeter bead, a 4 millimeter crystal and a smaller bead. Then you'll be doing another dangle from the eye pin so it could be another 4 millimeter.

Assembling Your Earring

Take your eye pin and line up three beads on it according to your taste. keep in mind that the "eye" or rounded part of the eye pin will be the bottom of the earring. Once you have the three or four beads assembled on the eye pin. If you've purchased long eye pins you'll have to cut it down to about 1/2 inch within the end of where the beads come.

Once you've done that, take your round nose pliers and bend the end of the eye pin at a 90 degree angle. Then place your eye pin at the very end and roll it back towards the beads. Before it's completely closed put it through the hole on the end of your ear wire.

Next, place one bead on the head pin and repeat the process - cut the pin to within 1/2 inch. Bend it to a 90 degree angle and loop it back - attaching it to the end of the eye pin.

There you go - a great way to create a number earrings fast and easy. You'll never have to go hunting for the first earring again.
