Last month’s perler bead crafts project was such a hit, that I thought I’d keep the theme going with some perler bead earrings. I don’t wear earrings very often, but I’m super-excited to wear these ones!
Other than your perler beads, pegboard, iron, and parchment paper, you’ll need to get some jewelry pliers and your earring hooks of choice.
I picked out some silver plated fish hooks and 4- and 6mm jump rings to put my earrings together.
The how-to is pretty simple. Layout your beads on your pegboard…
Iron them down (place the parchment paper between the beads and the iron).
Then use your pliers (and a steady hand) to attach your jump rings and hook. Isn’t that pretty?
I’ve already made some in a few different colors. I’ll be attending the SNAP! conference in Utah later this month–if you’re there just look for the girl with the perler earrings–I’d love to meet you!
