A Pair of Beaded Vintage Pearl Earrings by Jennifer VanBenschoten

One of Jennifer's favorite sources of inspiration for making beaded jewelry is antique and vintage jewelry. So when her good friend gifted me with a huge box of very special antique beaded jewelry, she decided to repurpose some of the jewelry for new jewelry-making projects.

Wire Wrapped Crystal Earrings by Jennifer VanBenschoten

One wire technique that Jennifer loves is wrapping a fine-gauge wire around a heavier gauge. The finished look is “messy chic”, and goes pretty well with her usual style. She picked out some natural copper wire and a nice, heavy gauge of antique brass craft wire, and sat down to make a funky earring-making project using just two crystals!

Hydrangea Earrings by Kelli Burns

One of the easiest ways to create floral earring designs is to use flower-shaped beads like the crystals in Kelli Burns's Hydrangea Earrings. Find floral components in a range of colors, including neutral shades of gray, brown, and navy or make them pop with pink like Kelli did. Selecting florals in neutral shades is also a great way to up the sophistication level and create handcrafted earrings that are perfect for any occasion.
