Chandelier earrings can have quite the price tag, especially for some of the more elaborate styles. If you just can’t force yourself to fork over the cash for that beautiful set you’ve had your eye on, why not try your hand at making your own? Your local craft store will have everything you need to make a set of these stunning earrings. The best part is, you can make them exactly like you want them. Have an outfit that you just can’t find a good set of earrings to match? No worries, you’ll be able to pick and choose colors to complement the most hard-to-match outfit. With all the money you’ll save by making your own chandelier earrings, you might even have enough left over to buy another outfit!
Are you going to be wearing your new set of earrings with jeans and a t-shirt? Or will you be pairing them with a lovely evening dress? Do you want a lot of sparkle and shine, or are you going for something a little more light-hearted and fun? These are important questions to ask yourself when you’re choosing your materials and design.
If you want something flashy or elegant, don’t be afraid to choose faceted gemstone beads, Swarovski crystals or other sparkly beads, along with an elegant silver or gold base. If you’re going to be making a more fun and colorful pair of chandelier earrings, you might want to choose brightly colored glass or plastic beads with a plastic or metal base. With the huge variety that is present in each of these categories, you should have no trouble creating exactly what you need.
It’s a good idea to sketch out your design on paper before you get started. Have a clear view of how you want your creation to look, or you could wind up with a very useless pair of earrings. Keep in mind the weight that you’re adding to each earring, too. You don’t want to have your final product pulling your earlobes down to your knees. Besides being uncomfortable, it probably wouldn’t be the look you were trying to go for in the first place!
