Day 3: Easy Pearl and Tassel Earrings

My love of crafting started as a love of beading when I was very young. A friend of mine got a seed bead loom for a birthday, hated it, and gave it to me. I fell in love.

These days I love to incorporate beads into my yarn works and I make jewelry from both yarn and beads. 
The original version of the earring I am sharing here was made several years ago for a friend. She lost one at a party last Christmas and mentions them all the time, so I decided to make her another pair. I hope she likes them and I hope you do too. Feel free to email me if you have questions about the tutorial.

I haven't included instruction on how to make a tassel. There are a lot of great sites that show you how better than I could. See this site for example for an easy, no mistake way to make your tassel -

For the tassels in my earrings I wrapped the yarn around 20 times for each earring. You should eyeball it and decide how full you want your tassel to be. 











I hope you like these earrings. I'm sure I'll post more varieties of yarn and bead earrings in the future.

Up next for Day 4 is a super easy crochet bow that can be made into a pin, a head band or as an accessory  for a Winter hat. 

Thanks for stopping by to see me!

I've linked this tutorial to the following parties:
