One of my favorite gifts to give (and to receive) is handmade jewelry. These bead drop earrings are so simple to make that I am going to teach you how to make them today. You can use any straight drilled stone or crystal bead. Craft stores do carry options but I do find nicer stones and crystals at the bead stores. If you don’t have tools already all you will need are flat nose jewelry pliers, round nose jewelry pliers and jewelry wire cutters. At the craft store or bead shop you can find the earring hooks, headpins and chain along with your beads. This simple DIY project makes such a lovely customized gift for Mother’s Day, a birthday, bridesmaid gifts, or just about for anyone who likes to wear earrings. You can download and print onto card stock the folded vintage chalkboard style jewelry holder and gift card. I made it in two sizes so they will fit right inside the small gift box. Check out the tutorial for these earrings below and let’s go bead! Cheers! ~ Lia
