DIY: earrings

Finally another DIY post. I guess I haven’t been very crafty. My ears went on strike for about 5 years, I couldn’t put any earrings in my ears without them getting infected, so I didn’t wear any earrings. After talking to some friends, they told me I had to find some studs and leave them in and put the new earring solution from Claire’s on them every day until the infection went away. I gave it a try with some stainless steel studs and it worked! Surgical/stainless steel is my new best friend. So I got this idea to find my own hooks and charms and make my own earrings. Enter Etsy!

Supplies:

  • Stainless steel earring hooks (I bought from this shop)
  • Charms (I found mine at this shop)
  • pliers

Instructions:

  1. Using the pliers, open the loop at the bottom of the earring hook (next to the ball)
  2. Slip charm onto hook
  3. Using pliers, close loop

Happy earring making!
