Sparkling loop earrings
You will need:
Assortment of beads in various shapes and sizes
Loop earring findings
The main aim of these earrings is to use up any left over beads and any short left over wire. The wire can be from 3 inches to 5 inches long.
If you prefer you can use loop earring findings. The loop is already made for you.

Thread your beads onto your wire. A clip of some sort will help stop them sliding off and flying off your wire. Leave enough wire to thread one end through the last bead on the wire. Pull the wire up to form a loop. Slide on a crimp bead over both wires and crimp the bead firmly closed. Trim off excess wire. Attach the bead loop to your earring post by gently pulling apart the loop at the bottom of the earring post; slip this where you closed the wire with the crimp bead. Close the earring post loop and you are done.
If you use left over wire and beads these earrings are very cheaply made and look pretty. Add them as a gift to the tea pocket favors.
I hope everyone is having a good day or evening where ever you are.
