DIY Beaded Earrings

DIY cute earrings for the summer, even if you're spending it mostly indoors.

If you follow my instagram, you will see that I made these earrings late last year. I made them in a hurry since it was for a trip, so I never got around to making a tutorial on how I did it.

*click items to shop

glass beads(for this project I am using seafoam luster and crystal, last year I used rainbow pinkpink, and light pink.)


1) Cut at least 4 - 4.5 inches of the jewelry cord for each beaded tassel.

2) String on your beads. I used 23 of the seafoam beads on each tassel, the 24th bead was the crystal bead.

3) Tie a double knot at the top of the cord.

4) For the last bead (the crystal bead), take the end of the cord and insert it into the top of the bead and pull it through. Then double knot at the end.

5) Cut off the excess cord at the end of the tassel and dip the double knot in glue. Let it dry for at least 15 minutes before handling.

6) Okay, here is the struggle part. Sadly, I don't have a photo of my success.  
Each beaded tassel should still have the excess cord at the top. Gather each tassel that you will be using for 1 earring and tie the excess cords together in a double knot.

7) Squeeze some glue into the tassel cap. Then, push in the double knot into the tassel cap, use the tip of the scissors to help you push it in. Let it dry for 20-30 minutes.

8) Spread some glue on the earring post and place your gem. Let it dry for 15 minutes.

9) Open the jump ring with the pliers and hook on the gem earring post first and then the beaded tassel cap. Secure it close with pliers.

10) Redo steps 1-9 for the other earring! 
* If you're making more than 4 beaded tassel per earring to use bigger tassel caps*

Cheers to looking cute at home! 😍 πŸ’•

Currently Reading: The Pale Horse by Agatha Christie - Chapter 4

Read 'The Pale Horse' with me: Apple/Kindle
Watch the latest adaption of 'The Pale Horse'

Chapter 4

We are back!
& we are back in Mark Easterbrook's POV, it's getting good.
Quite a long chapter too.

Mark has just finished watching the play 'Macbeth' at a theater with his friend Hermia. 
Afterwards, they drive over to a restaurant and run into their mutual friend David who always has a new girl on his arm.
The girl of today is: Poppy.

Mark, Hermia, and David discuss the different productions of Macbeth that they have seen. David goes on to say how he would rewrite the witches in the play as ordinary women who have an unsuspecting evil side to them. Very different than the witches that are often portrayed in almost every production of Macbeth.

They then go into a discussion about the 'Third Murderer' in the play and how Macbeth could easily order a murder to take place.
David says ordering up a murder is too convenient thats why it doesn't happen in the real world.

This is when Poppy chimes in saying that it can happen in real life. She's very flustered about it, but she mentions that it happens at The Pale Horse.

David doesn't take her seriously and they drop the conversation.


The next morning, Mark gets a call from Mrs. Olivier confirming her attendance for the fΓͺte.
Wow! πŸ˜§she's really going to through with this? After Dead Man's Folly?
She asks Mark if there will be any parties afterwards, because she's not good with small talk or having drinks at a pub like The Pale Horse.

Mark is like wait, what?!

But Mrs. Oliver is unsure if she has the correct name of the pub. πŸ•΅πŸ½‍♀️πŸ•΅πŸ½‍♀️πŸ•΅πŸ½‍♀️πŸ•΅πŸ½‍♀️πŸ•΅πŸ½‍♀️πŸ•΅πŸ½‍♀️πŸ•΅πŸ½‍♀️

Mark receives another phone call from a lawyer that was handling his late godmother's estate and effects.
And just guess who is godmother was?
Lady Hasketh-Dubois 

Another odd name on the list that was found on Father Gorman's body!

Mark goes to his godmother's house to collect a few paintings that was willed to him. While leaving, he runs into Dr. Corrigan.
They were in college together.
Dr. Corrigan tells Mark that he's in the area to visit Lady HK house to find out more about her.
Mark offers to tell him everything over lunch.

Mark explains that his godmother was very old fashioned, very stuck in her ways, lived in a Victorian, but gaudy house with equally gaudy furniture and was very opinionated and stuck in her ways.

Definitely not a likely target of blackmail like Dr. Corrigan thought.

Dr. Corrigan shows Mark the list of names, and almost all of the names he recognizes. Mostly people he has heard of or seen around the way.
 Especially our Death#1 Thomisina Tuckerton. He doesn't really mention her to Corrigan though.

They part ways and Mark starts to think he should inquire more about The Pale Horse. He calls up David to locate Poppy.

Poppy works in an upscale flower shop. Mark purchases some roses and then asks what Poppy knows of this pub.

Poppy denies even mentioning this pub, denies that Mark heard her mention it yesterday.
He watches Poppy closely, she is SHOOK!

We have a lead and it is a location!
Hopefully Mark let's Dr. Corrigan in on this info, he cannot do this alone!
Poppy is going to be next on our death list, isnt she? ☹️
