Sequin-wrapped wooden beads are attached to stud posts and chains from a jewelry-supply store.


  • Wire cutter or all-purpose craft scissors

  • Gold chain, approximately 5 inches long

  • 30-gauge gold jewelers' wire

  • Two 4 mm gold beads

  • Gold ball earring posts with small O-rings at their base


  1. Cut two 2 1/2-inch lengths of gold chain.

  2. Cut two 1 1/2-inch lengths of gold wire. Thread 1 piece of wire through 1 of the gold beads, then thread the wire through the end of one chain. Twist wire together to hold bead in place; trim excess.

  3. Thread chain through sequin-wrapped bead. Cut a 1 1/2-inch piece of wire; thread through the top link of the chain and through the O-ring on the bottom of the post. Twist wire to hold post in place, and trim excess.

  4. Repeat for the other earring.
