I admitted a few days ago that I've relegated my jewelry stash in the corner of my craft closet - but today I had a hankering to create some pretty earrings - it's Summer, after all - and Summer calls for fun, boho earrings in my book!
- Round gold stamping blanks
- Metal hole punch pliers
- Round crystal beads
- Head pins
- Flat nose pliers
- Round nose pliers
- Jump rings
- Earring hooks
First and foremost, you'll want to mark your blanks - I just eyeballed the spacing for mine you can measure if you want. I made five holes on mine, but you can add more or less. Use your metal hole punch pliers to punch the holes where you marked them.
Optional: Texture your blanks - I used the round tip of my jewelry hammer to create this fun texture, but you can opt out of it. I actually did it after I've assembled the earrings so I had to disassemble it again!
Create the drops for your earrings - I used fun, blue crystal beads for mine. Just thread them onto your head pin, cut the excess wire and loop the earring top. You will want to create 5 for each earring.
Attach the three center beads with jump rings.
Finally, attach the outer two without the jump rings (by opening up the loop you just made, hooking it to the hole and then closing the loop again). Attach the earring hook without the jump ring as well and you are done!
