DIY Five Minute Earrings!

Since moving, I’m all about simple, easy crafts and I have another quick gem to share today. I have no experience in jewelry making, but a post by Young and Crafty about earrings, made me think I could give it a try.

Good news! It really is easy to make a pair of earrings, even without any particular jewelry making skill.

What you need:

  • “Fish hook” ear-wires-86 pieces(42 pairs) for $3.99
  • Slim nose pliers for jewelry making- this one from Amazon is about $10-nice to work with, but not necessary
  • Pendant for earrings-the bird ones I used were $2.99 from AC Moore

DIY Five Minute Earrings!I took my slim/needle nose pliers and placed them in the loop of the “fish hook” ear-wire and opened the loop just enough for my pendant to fit on.

Then, I used the pliers and closed the loop.
