DIY Drop Earrings

I have some pretty new earrings thanks to a pretty simple project.  If you'd like to make some of your own, here are the supplies you will need:
Gold metallic embroidery floss
Drop earring findings
Assorted beads

Step one: cut a strand of the floss and double it over to form a loop at the top.

Step two: thread the top of the loop through each bead:
Like this, so the loop sticks out the top
Step three: slide the loop onto the earring finding:
Like this!
Step four, slide the beads closer to the earring finding and tie a knot to hold them in place.  The embroidery floss will fray, which gives the bottom of the earrings a fun tassel effect.  You can snip the tassels as long or short as you like.

How easy is that?!  Now, if you don't want to take the time to make these yourself, no worries!  I have two new pairs for sale in my etsy shop :).  For links to them: purple and pink tassel drop earrings and pink and gold tassel drop earrings
