This design is one of my favorite for earrings. Simple & sleek, I love the 'fruit' dangling on the end.
- focal 'fruit' beads
- leaf beads
- smaller beads/charms/beadcaps
You can use any bead as long as the 'fruit' at least +10-12mm. I've used a combination of rondelles, rounds and odd shaped nuggets.
Lay out your design. The basic frame is: hoop/hook, chain, leaf then 'fruit' bead.
You can add little charms and beads at this point. Connect the chain to your hook/hoop & you're all done!
