American Dream Earrings

fourth of july beaded earrings tutorial by Allison Beth Cooling

I usually don't post holiday-related tutorials, but I had all these components laying around and couldn't resist. My American Dream earrings were made to look like shooting stars, so very fitting for the Fourth of July.

beaded earrings tutorial by Allison Beth Cooling using Cousin Corporation beads

I used all Cousin Corporation materials, which you can pick up at any major craft store: Michaels, JoAnn Fabrics, AC Moore, Meijer and even Walmart. I first posted this video on my Snapchat (follow me @thequietlion for more exclusive tutorials and giveaways!) but have attached it below in case you missed it. They come together pretty quick, it's just a matter of measuring chain and connecting all the charms that's the most tedious.

-Cousin Jewelry Basics 9pc Metal Charm Shapes - I used just the star shapes from this pack, which includes hearts and clovers.

-Cousin Jewelry Basics 8mm Sapphire Round Crystals
-Silver link chain
-26g Silver Wire
-Silver Fishhooks, 4mm Jumprings, Silver Headpins
