I was so excited to get a sample of the Swift Bead Needle by Clover. I originally saw it demonstrated at Creativation in January and I was speechless when I saw it. I know it is going to dynamically change how I bead and make jewelry.
The Swift Bead needle is available on Amazon. (affiliate link)
Today I am sharing a video tutorial for making a pair of faux leather die-cut earrings. These earrings are beaded after die-cutting the faux leather. I like how the beads dangle down below the edge of the faux leather. You can start with the dies from the Maker’s Movement and then decorate them in so many different ways. I can’t wait to try another version of them soon.

I used the Crossover II machine to die-cut the faux leather that was used for these earrings. If you would like to see my unboxing of the Crossover II you can see that post here. [Crossover II] Check the video below for the complete tutorial on making these earrings.
Here are the finished earrings. Look at how the light reflects different colors on the faux leather.
