Mexican Inspired Bird Earrings

final image 2

I found these cute bird beads the other day at the bead store and couldn’t resist getting them!  I don’t know why, but I just love birds.  These were definitely calling my name. I love how they reminded me of brightly colored Mexican embroidered birds that you find on traditional Mexican clothing.  I decided I needed these for my wardrobe and I made a quick pair of earrings out of them that took only about 10 minutes.


Here’s what you need:

  • 2 Head Pins
  • 2 Statement Beads 
  • 4 Smaller Contrasting/Coordinating Beads
  • Round Nose Pliers
  • Flat Nose Pliers
  • Wire Cutters

Step 1:

beads on head pins

Place the smaller bead on the head pin followed by the bird bead.  Then place another small bead on top.

Step 2:

bent head pin

Take a pair of flat nose pliers and bend the wire back at a ninety degree angle.

Step 3:

completed earring

Take the round nose pliers loop the head pin down and then wrap around the base.  Trim off the excess length of wire.

Step 4:

Open the earring wire with the round nose pliers.  Loop the bird earring component onto the earring wire.  Close the loop.
