DIY Once Upon a Time Earrings

So I started watching this show Once upon a Time last week. Had it been about anything else than Snow White I might not have continued looking, but am now hooked! Anywho, I was at Michaels looking at fabric paint, when I accidentally (...) stumbled into the beads section and saw these really delicious yellow stone beads... Well, I just thought about Snow White (you know, the red apple, her red lips etc) so I just had to have them! A perfect hint of color on days when I'm all monochrome :)

These just took a couple of minutes to make, and it's really easy:

How to:

You need your beads, wire and hooks.

Take about a yard (1m) of wire, put the bead in at approx the middle of it.

Twirl the wire around a bit.

Put both wire ends through the hook's loop, and then twist the wires around the already twisted part.

When you come to the bead, just keep twirling it around.

Stick the ends of the wire inside the bead to hide them.



  1. Thank you for this tutorial. I have been buying beads, wire, etc.. but never did anything with them! This looked so simple that I now have my first pair of earrings that I made myself. Thank you so much! Lynne Pugh
