Mardi Gras Earrings Tutorial
Created by: Tiffany White
- Place one bead, glass, crystal or brass, on each headpin and secure with wrapped loops.
- Arrange the dangles onto the jump rings. Place two brass beads on first jump ring. Attach next jump ring and place one green dangle and one purple dangle.
- Repeat the second step, three times per earring.
- At one end of jump rings, attach ear wires. At opposite end, attach fleur-de-lis charms.
- At the quantities we offer, this project will make 4 pairs of earrings for less than $50.00!
- For a coordinating bracelet, see "Fat Tuesday" Bracelet. There is no coordinating necklace, since your neck will already be adorned with Mardi Gras beads!
