Guess what inspired these cherry earrings!  Such fun to wear, light as air and so easy to make.


Use 18.5 micron Superfine Merino wool to make the felted beads in a size to suit, about a 1/2 inch diameter works well.

Step 2

Tie a firm knot in one end of a length of waxed cord, thread on one bead, then pass cord through the earwire loop.

Step 3

Tie a loose knot and add the second bead and then tie off with another loose knot.

TIP: Do not firmly tie the last two knots until the earrings are equal in length.

I have two awesome websites where you can find tons of tutorials, courses, and workshops on how to make jewelry and how to sell it online.
