What’s the first thing you think of when you think of Autumn? The first thing I think of is -pumpkins. Although, me and shades of orange are not fashion friends, I will use the color sparingly in my daily style. Usually that means incorporating the color through my accessories.
That’s one benefit to also being a jewelry designer. I’ve got all the tools and supplies I need. When I create, if it happens to be the season of autumn, there is no shortage of inspiration. The colors and textures are just about all you need to create the perfect pair of autumn earrings.
Shown above is a fall fashion board, created by Crystal Allure Jewelry. It showcases the Stacked Gourds Crystal Lampwork Earrings (E242) paired with simple black trousers, pleated houndstooth coat (by Fred Flare), unique chocolate houndstooth patterned booties, a spice-colored jersey drape neck top (by H&M) and mustard-colored handbag.
What You’ll Need
- 8-Beads of your choosing
- 2-Earring wires
- Wire cutters
- Select your beads.
- Place the beads and/or crystals, one by one, onto the head pin.
- Hold the beaded headpin in your hand and bend the wire at a 90 degree angle.
- Take your pliers and place on the bent wire (the end pointing away from the earrings) near the beads, pull the long end of the wire towards the beads, forming a loop.
- Cut the excess wire at the base of the loop where it meets the straight wire (holding the beads).
- Slip your ear wire through the loop you just created (if needed, use your pliers to open the bead loop a little; be sure to close the loop once the ear wire is on). That’s it!
Having designed jewelry for years, I know it can get quite expensive to stock up on jewelry making supplies. If you really don’t want to get into purchasing all the supplies to create a pair of earrings, or you simply love this particular pair, then I’ve made it easy for you. Simply purchase them directly from my sister site, Crystal Allure.
