Rhinestone Pavé Dangle Earrings

You all know that our motto around here is that glitter makes everything better, and you know I’m easily distracted by shiny things!  So when I saw Rhinestone Pavé Ball beads last time I was browsing the GoodyBeads site, I couldn’t resist!  They come in lots of colors, but the Fuchsia was my favorite.  Here’s how I made some sparkly dangle earrings with them…

10mm Round Fuchsia Rhinestone Pavé Balls
Silver Plated Kidney Shaped Ear Wires
20 gauge Silver Plated Headpins with Ball Top
Needle nose pliers, Flat nose pliers, Wire cutters


Step 1: Place your pavé ball on a head pin.

Step 2: Form a simple wire loop.  You can do wire wrapping if you like, but I felt like that took away from the beauty of the bead itself.  If you’re not sure how to make a loop, check out my Basic Wire Loops & Wrapping post.  It will walk you through with step by step photos; I promise, it’s easier than you think!

Step 3: Slide the wire loop onto a kidney shaped ear wire.  If you prefer the look of a french ear wire or another type, you can certainly substitute whatever you like.  I chose this because I like the effect of it and the fact that this type of earring is longer, which works better with my hair.


That’s all there is to it; another super simple jewelry project you can do in less than five minutes…and look how fun the finished earrings are!  I mean, who doesn’t love to sparkle and shine?
