See how many variations you can do with the technique :) The beads used for this project are bicone crystals and some are created with pearls,  but you can also use different types of beads like glass beads.  They would still work well with the wire works in making these elegant beaded earrings.

On the other hand, if you want to incorporate life into the design for your beaded earring, you can use inspirations like butterflies or dragonflies would scream nature and outdoors and spring.  I loved how the dragonflies were brought to life with this cluster style, Dangling Dragonfly Earrings by Prima Beads.

You can also make beaded earrings for every season, be it summer or winter, or spring and fall.  Not only this but you can even make beaded earrings to suit every occasion, a valentines date maybe, or a Halloween costume party.

Let us not forget that our creative juices can save us a lot of money and even save mother earth.  How? By using some recycled materials in making our beaded earrings.

Paper can actually be a substitute for beads and you won’t really be able to tell the difference.  Let Copper Diem blog show you an example of the how to’s on this link: http://copperdiem.blogspot.com/2011/07/paint-chip-earrings-tutorial.html.  This is just a fresh and easy idea that you can make them in any color or design that you wish.
