Hey Everyone Cheesy Here are a pair of earrings I made the other day. Just thought I'd post them to see what you think. They're made of clear fishing line, white sequins, earring hook thingys, and these beads I bought at walmart called E beads. The E beads are just clear seed beeds with paint on the inside.

Thats them so I hope you like them Cheesy

Hey everyone  Cheesy I got some headpins and re-did the earrings so here they are



Also I made another pair with green and pink beads

those are cool. i think they'd be better with out the tail ends of the strings but if you cut them your beads might fall off so don't listen to me. They're very pretty, i love the colors you chose

 Cheesy Yea i was going to cut the ends more but I was scared the knot I made would come undone and the beads would fall off. Does anyone have any ideas for securing the beads at the bottom?? Huh

well... for future ideas, instead of using string, use those little pins made for making dangely jewelry.  You can get them at walmart.

As for securing what you have... if you have crimp beads you could slip a crimp bead on and crimp it which would hold everything in place.

The sad thing about nots is there habbit of coming untied when you cut the extra strands off.  Drives me up the wall.  You could probably trim those a little shorter without problem, they honestly don't look bad with the string hanging down though, kind of a cute touch.

The pins are called headpins.  They have a flat circular piece of metal similar looking to straight pins.  You'll need a pair of wire cutters and needle nose pliers to cut and secure.  Do you have a bead store or Michaels in your town?  They would show you everything you need.  The tools aren't expensive at all!  Look forward to seeing somemore danglies!

Thanks everyone for the compliments Cheesy I think I'll get some of those headpins and re-do the earrings. I live in a really small town so its hard to get different jewelry supplies but I should be able to get some head pins soon. I'll try and post pics once I re-do the earrings
