You can make these earrings in 1 hour or less.

Buy: 2 metal links, matching 28 gauge beading wire, ear wires, 2 jump rings, and your choice of seed beads. ( these are size #11)

Add 1 bead to your wire and leave about 1 inch tail. Make a blanket stitch around the link. Hold the bead and tail next to the link, wrap the wire around the back, cross in front of the link, and when you come back to the top, duck under the wire and pull tight. Repeat around.

Twist the end wire with the tail, and pull it through a bead hole. Cut twisted wires, just as they come out of the bead. Add your jump rings, and ear wires, and you're finished.
