Maya Kuzman always has cute ideas – and this one is perfect for me. These quick and easy earrings would make perfect gifts for a variety of occasions. Work some up in Christmas colors for stocking stuffers. Make them in black to look like creepy spiders. Work them in variegated thread to match your favorite outfits – or in the shown colors to add pizzazz to a July 4th patriotic tee shirt.
While Maya’s tutorial shows each earring with two motifs in length, that’s too long for me. The single motif on each ear is perfect for me. However, since longer earrings are trendy now, you can add even more than two. Make three motifs for each ear – red, white, and blue – and add a bit of sparkle with a crystal or gold bead where you join them. You’ll be your own little firework!
