I decided to have a bit of fun and join in the March Bead Challenge over at Fusion Beads. Today’s challenge was to make a pair of earrings that show your style. I whipped up this funky octopus pair in less than 5 minutes.
If you’d like to make your own set it’s super simple. For tools you just need two pairs of jewelry pliers (flat needlenose work best.) I picked up the earring hooks at Walmart a few years back as part of a set. The octopus charms came from ebay for about $1 shipped.
All you need to do is use your pliers to open the hoop at the bottom of the earring hooks, slide your charm on, and use your pliers to close the loop again.
It only take a minutes and voila, you’ve got new earrings!
