Freshwater Pearl and Spiral Pendant

Here is a sweet little pendant by Linkouture that isn't nearly as difficult as it looks. Instead of using wire to manipulate it into this somewhat nest-like design, Bev uses jump rings much in the way of chain maille. You probably already have everything you need to make these - chain nose pliers, flat nose pliers and a flush cutter; along with some jump rings, a pearl or two and some chain. These will work up so quick, you'll want to make them for everyone on your "good girl" Christmas list. Click HERE to find out how. (Photo and project by

Easy DIY Ear Sweeps

Ear Climbers (aka Ear Vines or Ear Sweeps) are so trendy right now. And, they're a great way to get the look of multiple holes in your ears without the commitment. As you know, I love projects that can use up leftover beads and this one fits the bill. You can even change them up - boho style or go elegant - simply by changing the type and color of bead. Super easy to make and super cool to look at. Everything you need to create these is probably already in your studio - wire, glue, some beads and/or stones and a pair of pliers. The earrings even have a built in ear wire. Click HERE to get all the instructions to make a pair.

The design is really easy to create with Patty's step by step graphic tutorial.And, with a design this cute, who wouldn't want to make one (see what I did there)?
