I’ve recently taken a little interest in wire jewellery (you can expect many more jewellery posts coming up in the next few months) and although it can be a little tricky at first, the end result came out quite well! I didn’t have the correct wire but improvised using earring hooks and pliers but I’d recommend you use some jewellery wire (if possible) and you can save yourself a lot of time!
THH Difficulty Level:
What you’ll need:
– 2 stone beads. I used some rose quartz I had lying around from a broken bracelet but these would do too!
– 2 sea shells (I used these ocean charms from Kmart)
- Gather all your items.
- Take the shell, attach a connector ring and then attach a earring hook.
- Using the pliers, straighten the hook enough to slide a bead through. Create a loop and cut the remaining wire. Repeat on the other earring.
- Attach the earring hooks to the two shells to create the earrings.
- Your new earrings are ready to be worn!
