When I looked up what people were making with tulip beads I found lots of lovely tulip earrings with brass and painted brass beads. Most of them had the little tulip bead hanging down so I figured I would do something cute and make a regular “up” tulip for my example pair.
Below the cut I’ve included the simple steps for this little pair of earrings. Some version of this would be sweet with the crocus beads I make as well. And I probably WILL go do a little fancier version with bead caps and crystals, too.
