Spring Daisies - Simple Earring Tutorial

Spring officially arrived in the northern hemisphere last weekend so I'd thought I share this tutorial for my Daisy earrings as published in Belle Armoire - very quick and simple to make and perfect for adding a little spring fever to any outfit.

2 double drilled daisy connectors (Thea Elements - to order)
2 enamelled leaf charms ( Gardanne Beads )
4 brass tube beads ( Hands of the Hills )
16" waxed linen
Ear wires

Step 1
Cut an 8 inch length of waxed linen and pass it though the hole in an enamelled leaf charm. Bring the ends of the linen together and pass through a hole in the bronze daisy charm from front to back.

Step 2
Bring each end of the strand round to the front and then wrap the linen around itself a few times finishing at the front. Knot to secure.

Step 3
String a tube bead to each strand, knot and trim.

Step 4
Attach ear wire.

Step 5
Repeat steps 1 - 4 for the second earring.

And there you have your new earrings. You can of course substitute any similar components to create your own take on the design - the possibilities are endless.



  1. I really love this technique!!!! I get so tired of seeing the same old headpin/wire/dangle technique. Is this copyrighted or can we use this technique to make and sell earrings with our own findings?

    1. Thank you Diana - you are free to use tutorials published on AJE to produce your own work to sell - a credit is always appreciated :0)
