Fast and Easy Earrings Book Giveaway!


Want it now?


I love earrings. LOOOOVE them. I wear them all the time, even in pajamas, and I feel completely "off" if I don't have them on. Earrings are also a huge seller at my craft shows. Back when I was doing lots of shows, I made sure I had at least 300 pairs ready to go at any given time. I have a divided box that houses only pairs of beads, and when my creativity decides to head out the door and play without me, I can pull out the doubles box and get to work making earrings.



Photo above and below show my display of never-ending earrings.



This Kalmbach book is packed with over 100 projects for earrings, including everything from long, delicate chain earrings, simple wire work adornments, and mixed materials. I have Lucite earrings on page 103, too!

The book is separated into sections:
  • Crystals
  • Glass
  • Metal and Wire
  • Stones
  • Pearls
  • Mixed Materials

You will learn everything from how to make your own ear wires (and how to make the ear wire part of the entire earring design) to how to make post earrings using wire and a few twists of the wrist. Making post earrings from start to finish is something I'm going to jump on, because it's a great way to use my collection of lampwork disks and even buttons! 




With over 100 earring tutorials, you can choose to make something fun and flirty or demure and classic. Hoops, chandeliers, posts, and everything in between!


I am giving away a copy of Fast and Easy Earrings and you only have to do a few things to get a chance to win. 

You don't have to do them all, but the more slips with your name on it go into the Sorting Bowl and the greater the chances you have to grab this awesome book!

  11. Loove, love, love earrings too. Lately seems to be stuck in a rut. I been repeating designs and can't seem to find inspiration and courage to try different things and use the tons of beads I been saving. Perhaps this book is the perfect solution for my problem!

  12. Jean Palionis: I used to be an avid beader until life got in the way. Seeing your bead work makes my fingers itch. I have always wanted to do my own work from start to finish and your book fits that bill. Thank you ahead of time for offering a great work.
