I bought some natural rectangular crystal beads from a wholesale beads store and here is the first pair of earrings I made with them. These crystal bead earrings are made as an extension of the techniques we have used in our previous earring projects.
How to Make Rectangle bead earrings:
- Round Nose Pliers
- Flat Nose Pliers
- Wire Cutter
Take a head pin and slide a round metal spacer bead.
Slide a rectangular bead followed by another spacer bead.
Using round and flat nose pliers, bend the wire and make a loop at the top. Any excess wire is trimmed off using wire cutter. If this is your first project, see here for the basics of making loops.
Now for the other part of the earring, slide a rectangle bead on an eye pin and make a loop at the top. As you can see, for this part we are not using spacer beads.
Connect the two parts. Flat nose pliers can be used to open and close the loop.
Insert a fish hook ear wire at the top.
