DIY Earrings

I pulled out my jewelry supplies this week and got busy!  My goal was to make some earring for some new shirts I got for our upcoming cruise, and once I got started and just couldn’t stop!  Making jewelry is really fun and I want to make a whole lot more.

Here’s what I made this week:

These are so cute and I love the way they look, but seed beads are of the devil!    DSC_3232-2

These were actually pendants for necklaces that I got when Robert’s Craft closed.  I thought they would make cute earrings…and they do! DSC_3234DSC_3237-2

And everyone’s favorite flower earrings…I’ve made these before and they are super easy.  I made 25 pairs in about 10-15 minutes!  DSC_3239

I have a lot more beads to make into fantastic creations, I’m just waiting on more jump rings and ear hooks, etc from china ;)  If you are looking for cheap supplies, there are lots of Etsy stores that sell from outside the US that sell bulk jewelry supplies for cheap {it just takes a few weeks to get to you, usually!} 

If you are looking for a good start to jewelry making, I found a really good series about learning the techniques at My Girlish Whims.

  2. Very nice, love simplicity, the shiny is great. Wonderful jewelry idea. Seems like they'd be fairly inexpensive to make, think two teenage grand daughters would love these. Next time I'm in craft store I'll be looking out for the supplies. Great post
    . Glad you had a good break, you deserve it. Sometimes other things like your family, friends deserve to come first before your blog.
