I usually like to cut a generous piece of beading wire when working on the project. The leftover bits are saved for future designs. One way to reuse them is with this Cluster Earrings tutorial by Bead Studio.

What's different about this design is the knotting at the bottom of each dangle rather than crimping. The use of a short piece of straw to help with the knotting is also clever.

Got lots of beading wire bits?  Then check out this  gorgeous necklace tutorial that might make you cross-eyed with all the crimping!
