I don’t usually dress up for the holidays, but I do love themed earrings! Holiday earrings are a fun way to celebrate without being too over the top. This year you can use my trick to get a jump on your holiday crafts and make extra-cute themed earrings with a twist, using TierraCast® charms!
TierraCast® charms are perfect for earring projects. Their selection is extensive and each charm has wonderful details. These charms are light enough you can add beads to your earring design without worrying about weight and their colors of plating are so consistent it makes mixing and matching easy! With so many great options, I couldn’t pick just one charm for each holiday, so I made this year’s earrings with mismatched charms!
I’m not quite ready to let go of summer holidays, so I made my first pair of earrings ocean-themed with cool blue Swarovski crystals.
I added a wire wrapped bead link to one of my Halloween earrings to help the gravestone hang closer to the same height as the zombie.
I used bright bugle and round seed beads to give a pop of color to my Christmas earrings.
The loops of the lock and key charms were too thick to fit with the ear wires I picked for my Valentine’s Day earrings, so I made the simple loops on my bead links larger than normal.
Are you planning for the holidays yet?
Happy Tuesday! – Gretchen
