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 - http://www.nezumiworld.com/crochet_057.htm
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!
