Well, it's not exactly a tutorial, as it's very easy! But here it goes!
You'll need:
46 jump rings
28 sequins with holes in the middle
A pair of earrings (findings?)
Here's what you do:
This is the "core" of the earrings.First fasten 9 of the jump rings in the earrings, so it looks like this:
The next/last step is adding the sequins. Open a jumpring and put the sequin on it (I'll just call these seq rings). In these earrings I didn't add any at the first jump ring, but I added two seq rings on the second ring on the core. Add three seq rings in the third jump ring. Put one seq ring in each of the next jump rings in the core. Then add two seq rings on the seventh ring. Now there's two "free" jump rings in the core left. The next seq ring you add over both of them(so it goes through both of them). Add two seq rings on the last jump ring in the core, then add one seq ring on one of the seq rings.

The finished product'll look like this:


I hope this is understandable Smiley If anything's unclear, let me know, and I'll try to explain it better!

I love this!  I made a few pairs today.  Question: what size jump ring did you use?  The first pair I made I used a 4mm and it was really tricky, and I didn't like how it laid very well.  The second pair, I used a larger size for the base and the 4 mm for the seq. rings.  Then I added one really big jump ring to the end and strung 4 sequins with seed beads in between so there's a hoop on the end.  It came out kinda cute, I thought!

Thanks for this, it's awesome!

Yea, I made some of these a few weeks ago and yours are really great, heres some more suggestions
- instead of using jumprings in the middle I bought some of the silver link-chain
- also lots of colors make some great variation and add more sparkle (i did a blueish and purple for one of my friends birtday and it turned out really well.)
Thats all I have to say, Your earrings look really great and you posted a great tutorial
-thanks for posting on what sequin earrings look like up close because a lot of people wanted to see but my camera is really really bad)

it would help if you guys could recommend a size for the jump rings and sequins. I couldn't determine how big they are in the pic so I bought 7mm jumprings and 8mm sequins, but now that I think about it I'm afraid that too big. I'll be trying this tonight, so I'll let ya know.  Smiley
