Disco Ball Earrings

D-I-S-C-O Don't you want to disco?!
That was a line from one of the less popular color war cheers from summer camp. Good times. 

I don't know if you noticed but I used a super cool disco ball bead in a couple of recent projects, like this necklace and these earrings. I found it at Toho Shoji and kind of fell in love. I just think it is so sweet looking.  

I wanted to make something where the balls were less of a side element and more the main attraction. So I made a party for my ears. It was just the obvious next step.

Hello, Disco Ball Earrings:
Perfect for the Discotech, no? 

1. Pliers from a local hardware store. 
2. Gold loops from Toho Shoji.
3. Earring hooks from Toho Shoji. 
4. Disco ball beads from Toho Shoji. 
5. Gold Chain from Toho Shoji. 

Step 1:
Use the pliers to cut the chain in half. 

Step 2:
Use the pliers to attach a hook to one end of the chain and secure it on. 

Step 3:
Thread the bead onto the chain and use the pliers to bend the loop at the end of the chain. This will secure the bead onto the chain. 

Step 4:
Use the pliers to attach the other end of the chain and the earring hook onto a metal loop. Repeat on the second chain. 

Party Time!

I'd say this is a most elegant ear party. Maybe this is the only "ear party." Whatever, I'm having fun. 
I'm 100% going to wear these next time I go dancing. I wonder if anyone will notice the thematic dressing...

What do ya think? Nifty right? Want them? I made extras! e-me!
