How to Make “Loop” Earrings!

Hi Friends! I hope you are having a good weekend! It is a holiday weekend in the states and many people get to enjoy a long weekend with Columbus Day tomorrow. It Is also a good sale weekend if you are looking for bargains. The thing I love most about this long weekend is that the leaves are in full fall glory. We went to Acadia Nation Park (in Bar Harbor, Maine) yesterday and it was beautiful. I will have to look through the photos I took and come up with a painting tutorial, I think I want to do a palette knife painting of birch trees. We will see! Tonight, though, I am going to share a tutorial on making continuous loop earrings:


These are fun to make and great for using up scraps of beading wire leftover from necklace and earring projects. I am using 7 strand Beadalon wire but any flexible stringing wire will work. Watch the video to see how it is done.


ear wires
small beads
crimp beads
needle nose pliers
flush cutter
clips to keep beads from slipping off the wire, I got a 6 pack at the dollar tree.

It is supposed to be nearly 70 on Monday, I can’t wait to get outside on a warm day, Maybe I will film a tutorial painting outside for you, what do you think? I hope you try these earrings, they are quite addicting to make and I can use up all of those small bits of wire I save after making bracelets. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  1. Very pretty earrings. Do you live close to Bar Harbor? We went there one time and I love it. Want to go back again someday. We stayed at a bed and breakfast called The Graycote Inn. It was very nice I didn’t think I would like it but sure was nice to have someone cook breakfast for you every morning. Have a good week.


  2. Oh you make it look so easy!!! I love the colors you chose!


  3. Hi Lindsay I love your tutorial videos Thanks and this one came just right as I have broken a bead necklace, so now I think I will recycle and make some earrings. I love reading your comments about the weather and your locality as I live in the west of England, which is also lovely this time of year. Best wishes. Pat
