Festive Felt Earrings Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

These playful earrings are so easy to make. The felt beads are super lightweight, so you can dangle them to your shoulders. Mix and match the colors and combine them with other beads for endless possibilities.

Step one: On a sterling silver 22 gauge 1?â?Æ?é?ÇÜ?â?ÇÜ?é?¼? inch head pin thread a 6mm jet glass roundel, a strong orange 10mm felt bead, a jet roundel, a round 8/0 matte opaque sour apple Toho bead, a round 8/0 frosted silver-lined medium orange Toho bead and a round 11/0 frosted silver-lined peridot Toho bead. Finish with a simple loop and attach it to a sterling silver French hook ear wire with ball. For help making a simple loop, please see the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center. Repeat for the other earring.

Step two: On a sterling silver 22 gauge 1-inch head pin, thread a 8/0 sour apple Toho bead and a 7mm black felt bead. Pull the Toho bead up into the felt bead so that it is snug. Add a 6mm matte olive glass roundel and finish with a simple loop. Attach to the loop on the earring. Repeat for the other earring.
