We thought today we’d focus on some of the great découpage beads offered on our site. These beautiful, lightweight focal beads are perfect for making earrings. Cynthia, our chief jewelry designer, saw the potential of these and she had a blast coming up with different designs and color combinations to match all sorts of different découpage beads. Check out our collection and choose your favorite rounds to use. Then, follow our simple steps for either the fancy peacock earrings or cute owl earrings.
- Thread one 2-inch base metal head pin with one spacer bead, one découpage bead and a second spacer bead. Finish the top with a simple loop technique.
- Attach your simple loop to one earwire.
Complete these steps again for a second earring and that’s it!
For these earrings, find your favorite 4mm and 6mm Swarovski bicone beads and spacers to accent the découpage bead.
Repeat these steps to create a second earring. You’re now ready to show off your beautiful new design!
