More Details

  • A quick way to make linear earrings!
  • Attach dangles, thread beads on, or leave plain.
  • Use post to penetrate piercing, then pull through.
  • Available in Sterling Silver and Vermeil.
  • Select styles available in both original style and "U" threaders.
  • Lengths may vary.


"U" Threaders


  • Beads with 1mm+ hole (including most 6mm and 8mm Swarovski crystal bicones) can be strung directly onto the thread. Vermeil ear threads are slightly thicker.
  • Changeable earrings: New earrings every day! Change the slide-on beads each time you wear them.
  • For threads without a built-in "U": To keep beads on thread when on display card or in jewelry box, carefully add wire keepers (#33-960, #33-961) or better yet, use SmartBeads with Bead Positioning System (available in sterling and gold). These look great and are easy to put on ear threads without breaking the solder joint.
  • Threads with built-in "U" are great because the "U" keeps the thread in place in the ear - no need for a nut in the back. We do not recommend stringing beads onto these styles, as it could bend or otherwise damage the "U."
  • To keep beads on thread permanently: Use sterling crimp bead #41-553 or GF crimp bead #41-653 above beads.

these are so comfortable. So nice. I am going to make an earring out of them and change it up a bit. I love them unique too. Thank you so much. :-)
