How to Make Earrings

How to Make Earrings

This tutorial from Rings & Things offers three different techniques for creating earrings with different components. Create basic earrings, chandelier earrings or ear threads.

 

Basic earrings: Gently open the loop on the earring component, (see jump ring hint) and insert the earring dangle loop. Close the loop.

 

Jump Ring Hint

Jump-ring hint:
When you open and close jump rings, twist sideways instead of “ovalling” them. This keeps their shape better, which makes them easier to close all the way.
 

 

 

Chandelier earrings: Attach charm or connector to earring component (see jump ring hint). Attach dangles by attaching beaded head and eye pins to charm or connector before closing the loop on the dangle.
 

Ear threads: Ear-thread designs can be changed every day. Just slide beads on and wear. The next day re-arrange yesterday’s beads or slide on a whole new design! To keep beads in place use SmartBeads or Bead Bumpers™.
