Seed beads are usually sold by weight, meaning you often end up getting more than you need. But then you only have a few left over, so what do you do with them? Make these simple bead and jump ring earrings! This is also a great beginner project which is great for practicing using pliers and jump rings.

You Will Need:

-14x Seed Beads (size 5,6 and 7 all work well)

-22x 6mm Jump Rings

-Pair of fishhook earring findings

-At least 1 pair, preferably 2 chainnose pliers

2.Open another jump ring, thread on a seed bead then attach to the closed ring you added in step 1.

3.Add another jump ring with a seed bead to the jump ring from step 1.

4.Add a jump ring without a seed bead

5.Add two jump rings each with a seed bead on to this ring.
