These fast and simple earrings were made to complement our Earthy Hill Tribe Silver Bead Bracelet. For instructions on the Earthy Hill Tribe Silver bead bracelet, please click here. To save money, use the leftover 6mm cat's eye round beads and 9mm sapphire/lemon with Picasso flat square beads from the Earthy Hill Tribe Silver bead bracelet.
Step one: On a 1-inch sterling silver eye pin, string one 4.5mm shiny saucer bead, one 9mm sapphire/lemon with Picasso flat square and another 4.5mm shiny saucer bead. Finish with a simple loop. For help with a simple loop please see our Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Attach to one of the sterling silver ear wires.
