DIY Statement Earrings Part II | Oh Happy Day!

Materials needed: Leather, scissors, 1/16” hole punch, jewelry tools (wire cutters, round nose pliers), eye pins, earring hooks

Step 1: Cut a 1-1/2″ circle from the leather. Make a small hole punch on the top and bottom of the design. Then cut out a rectangle and punch a hole at the top.

Step 2: Using a round nose plier, curl the straight end of an eye-pin so you have a circle. Clip the eye of the pin off. Use this loop to connect the circle and rectangle leather pieces.

Step 3: Curl the straight end of another eye pin so that you have a figure eight. Open the larger curl, and thread through the remaining hole on the top of the circular leather piece.

Step 4: Loop the earring wire through the eye pin. Repeat to create your mate.

Materials needed: Cardboard, scissors, embroidery floss, jewelry tools (wire cutters, round nose pliers, flat nose pliers), 24 gauge jewelry wire, eye pins, earring hooks

Step 1: Cut out a rectangular piece of cardboard 2” by 3-1/2″. Wrap the embroidery floss around the length of the cardboard until you’ve run out of thread.

Step 2: Using a round nose plier, curl the straight end of an eye-pin so that you have a figure eight, with the newly curled half larger than the original. Open the larger curl, wrap around the bunched embroidery floss, then close with a flat nose plier.

Step 3: Remove the cardboard. While holding the eye-pin, gather the embroidery floss into a bundle, then wrap the top of the bundle with jewelry wire to create a tassel.

Step 4: Loop the earring wire through the eye pin. Then, repeat Steps 1-3 to create your earring’s mate!

Materials needed: Shrinky Dink paper, 1/4″ hole punch, scissors, permanent markers, oven, jewelry tools (wire cutters, round nose pliers), eye pins, earring hooks

Step 1: Draw your design on the shrinky dink paper, then cut it out. Punch a hole to hang it from later. Keep in mind that your design will shrink to about 1/3 of the original size.

Step 2: Bake the shrinky dink as directed on the package. You can lay a small piece of cardstock over the top of your design to keep it from curling.

Step 3: Using a round nose plier, curl the straight end of an eye-pin so that you have a figure eight. Open the larger curl, and thread through the hole you made earlier.

Step 4: Loop the earring wire through the eye pin. Repeat to create your mate.
