Perler Bead Earrings Tutorial.

Perler Bead Earrings

Last month’s perler bead project was such a hit, that I thought I’d keep the theme going with some perler bead earrings. I don’t wear earrings very often, but I’m super-excited to wear these!

Other than your perler beads, pegboard, iron, and parchment paper, you’ll need to get some jewelry pliers and your earring hooks of choice.

I picked out some silver plated fish hooks and 4- and 6mm jump rings to put my earrings together.

The how-to is pretty simple. Layout your beads on your pegboard…

Iron them down (place the parchment paper between the beads and the iron).

Then use your pliers (and a steady hand) to attach your jump rings and hook. Isn’t that pretty?

I’ve already made some in a few different colors. I’ll be attending the SNAP! conference in Utah later this month–if you’re there just look for the girl with the perler earrings–I’d love to meet you!

Now what should I make with my perler beads next?

    I thought these were cute when it was just the photo of the earrings, but on they look even better! I think I may need to invest in some perler beads with these fun posts!
