Boho Earrings Tutorial Must Watch

Putting It All Together

Once you have your beads, head pins, earring hooks and pliers, you are ready to begin making your awesomdary earrings!

First, pick out which beads you will be using to make both sets of earrings. You will want to make sure that you have enough for each side, if symmetry is your thing, you will need the same type of beads on each side.

Once your beads are selected, you will need to connect our earring hook to the pin. To do this, gently open up the fish eye hook on the pin and connect it to the earring hook hole. If you are using a flat head pin then skip this step as you will be connecting the pin to the earring after you have threaded your beads through. See video tutorial for more details.

Okay so you have your earring hook connected to the pin, now you may start putting your beads through the pin. You will need to leave about a centimeter of space at the end of the pin in order to loop it and make a loop so that your beads do not fall off.

If you are using a standard fish eye hook like the one in the video tutorial, once you have your space at the bottom, gently use your pliers to curl the metal wire under the bead so that it is securely in place.

If you are using a flat head pin, you need to leave a centimeter of space at the top and connect the wire to the earring hook-hole. Gently form a loop that connects the earring loop to the metal pin. Close the head pin loop as tight as it will go to fit it securely in place.

You should now have a lovely pair of earrings that can dangle and flow and should be pretty sturdy!

I highly recommend watching the tutorial video on step by step instructions on how to make Boho Earrings. Check out some of my other thrifty trinkets on my Etsy store!
