These pretty gold plated gemstone earrings look like they were an expensive buy at a fancy store, but they take less than five minutes to make! In fact they’re so simple that I almost feel silly sharing the tutorial with you. Honestly! The secret is in the gorgeous beads, not the technique. Check it out…

Step 1: Place your bead on an eyepin. If you’re feeling lost already because you have never done any jewelry making, you might want to take just a minute to hop over to my Beading Basics post and get a step by step photo tutorial for this part.

Step 2: Use needle nose pliers to form a wire loop. You can wrap the extra wire if you like {I did}, or just cut it off and have a simple loop.

Step 3: Open your ear wire, attach the wire loop to it, then close it securely.
