This five-minute video I made shows you how to make a pair of earrings—or any other embellishment, pendant, or dangle—using two beads, wire or eyepins, earring wires, and pliers. Check out my Simple Drop Earrings how to for more details, too!

I'm definitely a crafter more than a filmmaker! I'll try to re-shoot this one with a lighter background, but hopefully it's helpful for now.

Ancee writes: I find your how-to's very informative and helpful; one suggestion, can you make the earrings against a white or light colored table top....the brown wood background makes the video come out dark and hard to pick up.

Thanks and happy holidays!
