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.
- “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
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.
That’s it! You have simple, quick earrings that you can personalize any way you want!
This is the beginning of a wonderful new addiction for me.
Have fun with your own creations! I’d love to see any designs you all come up with.
