Many moons ago I owned a very wee jewelry business, so today I will take a short break from all things paper, and share with you an easy DIY earring project. These are perfect for any upcoming celebrations (ahem, Carnival and St Patrick’s Day are fast approaching!)

The How

Step 1:

Prep your charms. If your charm only has one connector, you can skip this step. For those with multiple connectors, cut all but one connector on your charm using your wire cutter. If the surface is rough after the cut, you will need to file it until smooth using a filing tool

Step 2:

Use your fingers/pliers to create a slight opening between the ball of the earwire and the rest of the earwire

Step 3:

Slide your charm along the earwire as shown, then close the opening you created to secure the charm

Yay!

If you are giving your lovely creation as a gift, use the wooden tag as shown, and wrap ’em up. Otherwise, put them on your sassy self and sashay for the world to admire.

Until next time!
