Jewelry Making (With Leftovers)
Sometimes you just run out of jewelry supplies. This pair of earrings is a perfect DIY project for when you just have a couple of jewelry findings and a pair of pliers. All you need are a few supplies and 10 minutes of your time.
It is a great project for beginners.
This article will teach you how to make the earrings pictured below.
Things You'll Need
Here is a list of the supplies that you will need for this project:
- Eye pins (3 for each earring)
- Jump rings (1 for each earring)
- Hook earwire (1 for each earring)
- A pair of nose pliers
Purchase Eye Pins
Instructions to Make the Earrings
Take three eye pins and close the ends of the eye pins, at whatever length you desire, by making a loop at the other end using a pair of nose pliers.
Tip: You can make each one a different length to make a unique triangle. I made all three the same length to make an equilateral triangle.
The next step is to take one base eye pin and attach the other two on either side of the eye pin as shown in the images, with the help of the nose pliers.
Take your jump ring and open it using the pliers. Take an eye pin on the extreme left (or right) and put it in the opened jump ring.
The next step is to take the another eye pin in the extreme right (or left) and put it in the jump ring. You will now see that a triangle has been formed. Do not close the jump ring yet.
The last step is to insert a hook ear wire as well to complete your earring. Your earring is ready.
Repeat the same steps one more time to create the pair. These totally glam up your look and — as you can see — hardly take any time to make.
Other Ideas and Final Thoughts
You can tweak the design however you like and use your imagination to do more with this project. I chose the color gold for the project, but you can even try silver, copper or just about any color. I am sure those colors will also look fabulous. You can even try making it with different colors.
Another option is to take your favorite nail paint and paint the earring with that color in case you want to make it extra special. Also, you can insert beads in the eye pins.
What's great about this is that you can customize them and be your special unique pair of earrings.
You can even make many and give them away as tokens of appreciation for your loved ones.
I hope you enjoyed the tutorial and are going to try out making the earrings!
