Jetson Bead Earrings

I really liked the look of these after I made them up… they remind me of one of my favorite cartoons as a kid, the Jetsons. This is because the jumrings move around like flying sauciers.

You’ll need these supplies:

  • 6 – 5mm glass druk disk or saucier beads
  • 6 – jumprings; silvertone
  • 2 – glass druk rice beads
  • 2 – 2mm seamless round; sliver
  • 2 – headpins; silvertone
  • 2 – eyepins; silvertone
  • 2 – earwires; silvertone

You’ll need these tools:

  • wire cutters
  • chain nose pliers
  • round nose pliers


1.) Bead on the headpin: glass druk disk bead, jumpring. Repeat 5 times. Loop.
1.) Bead on the eyepin: one rice bead, one seamless round and then the other rice bead. Loop and wrap.
2.) Attach to the earwire.
5.) Repeat for the second earring. It’s that easy!

Enjoy!
