18 Simple & Easy Earring Making Ideas
Earrings are one of the easiest DIY jewelry projects to make. Here are some ideas for simple earrings that only take a few beads, some findings, and a pair of jewelry pliers.
Yes, I know… the 60’s are over. But some might say that the era represented not just a time but a mindset… and couldn’t we use a little 60’s mindset right now? I know *I* could. I bought these little stamped brass flower charms awhile ago and the first incarnation featured small blackstone rondelles. This […]
I bought these lovely smoky-sparkly golden crystals awhile ago and was at a loss as to what to do with them. Finally deciding not to overthink it, I added oxidized sterling silver findings and oxidized, stylized, sterling silver handcrafted earwires to them and I loved the way they turned out. Sometimes simple is best!
First I hammered heavy wire into ear wires. Then I wrapped very thin wire around the ear wires, adding in a Swarovski crystal. Then I wire wrapped the carnelian beads and attached them to the ear wires. I tumble polished the finished earrings and oxidized all the copper wire to achieve the black color. Then […]
I wanted to make a pair of fun earrings that would go anywhere…pool or dinner party. I started with the super cute rectangular sterling silver beads and added iridescent faceted black glass beads to the top and bottom. I strung them all together with a piece of Argentine half hard sterling silver wire and attached […]
My “I love you” earrings are inspired by love. A great pair of earrings made of natural coral quartz briolettes, wire wrapped in sterling silver. To make these, first gather two gemstone beads, some sterling silver 20 gauge dead soft wire, and two ear wires. Next, make a loop in the wire and start wrapping […]
I started this earring by placing a Swarovski 4 mm Siam cube crystal on a head pin. I then placed a 6 mm Swarovski Margarita bead, then 8 mm crystal, then 10 mm crystal, and finished it with a 6mm brown bicone bead to complete the Christmas tree shape. I attached the head pin to […]
I designed these simple earrings so they would represent the international color for breast cancer awareness and also coordinate with other “pink” pieces I created to support the Young Survival Coalition. I stacked light pink Swavorski cube crystals accented with brass heishi beads and hot pink fire polished crystals onto gold-plated head pins and dangled […]
Hanging on sterling silver ear hooks are large, faceted, pale yellow, honey jade rectangular stones measuring 11x17mm. The stones are strung on headpins which are attached to silver colored chain. The whole earring dangles about 2 1/2″ from top to bottom. They are simple but still elegant!
My lampwork beads in this earring pair measures 15x10mm. They are made with a base of black and dotted with ivory and grey suckers. Each sucker is made by placing dots of molten glass around the bead and then poking each one in the middle with a sharp tool while hot. After they were annealed […]
I created these earrings using beads which I have only recently discovered through a friend – metalized ceramic. The discs are actually sterling silver plated ceramic, so they are lightweight and relatively cheaper than solid sterling silver beads. I combined the shiny silver with a simple black glass bead as this is always a classic […]
