Swarovski Crystals mushroom beaded earrings on silver plated ear wires.

Welcome jewellery making business owners! If you're looking for inspiration for your next creative project and likely best seller, consider making mushroom earrings using Swarovski Crystals and beads. Not only will they add a touch of whimsy to any outfit, but they're also surprisingly easy to make. Follow the easy step by step instructions below, to create your very own set of mushroom earrings.


Who can buy Swarovski Crystals and beads?

Please be aware that Swarovski Crystals are only available to select brands and businesses, who accept that the purchase of Swarovski components does not allow them to use the Swarovski brand name to market their products. These businesses must also be using Swarovski Crystals to create a finished product and not using them loose as part of a service. If you are willing to accept the brand restrictions and sign a Brand Control Agreement with Swarovski, you can apply via our website to become a Swarovski Approved Customer and we as a Swarovski Authorised Distribution Partner will then be able to supply you with Swarovski crystal beads via the Bluestreak Crystals website.

Step 1

Thread the beads in the right order to form the mushroom shape.

The headpin is going to form the body of the earring, with the flat head preventing the beads from sliding off the bottom. Thread the crystals beads onto the headpin starting with the 5500 Pear Bead ensuring the wider end of the bead faces the bottom, then add the 5542 Small Dome Bead so that the dome curves down over the top of the Pear Bead. Once assembled they should resemble a cute little crystal mushroom.

Step 2

Secure the bead and create a loop.

Use Chain Nose Pliers to bend the head pin at a right angle just above the beads, this will stop the beads from sliding off the pin. Then use Round Nose Pliers to loop the headpin back on itself into a small circle and cut off the rest of the wire with Side Cutters, giving you a closed loop similar to a jump ring. This completes the mushroom pendant and at this point it could be attached to earrings or onto a chain to become a necklace.

Step 3

Attach the ear wire.

Using a combination of the round nose and chain nose pliers, gently twist open the loop at the bottom of the Fishhook Ear wire, then thread the mushroom pendant onto the opened loop. Be sure to always twist the loops open and closed and never pull them open as that will make the loop more likely to break in the future.

Step 4

Create a matching pair.

Repeat steps 1 to 3 to create the second mushroom earring and complete the set.
