How To Make A Pair Of Earrings


  • 2-4 Head or eye pins
  • 2 Ear hooks
  • Beads of your choice
  • Round nose pliers
  • Cutting pliers
  • And of course... IMAGINATION!

STEP 1. First of all, you have to decide if you want them really long and dangly or normal sized earrings. Ok lets name the super long and dangly one #1 and the normal one #2. If you are making #1 then your gonna need 2 head pins and 2 eye pins. If your gonna make #2 then you just need 2 head pins. For #1 i suggest doing about 5-6 beads but it is totally up to you how many that you use. For # 2 it really only depends on how long you want it. I usually do about 3-5.

STEP 2. Next, you have to pick your design. After you have that done, put that design on the eye pin if your doing #1 or the head pin if your doing #2.

STEP 3. So both #1 and #2 should have some extra matal from the pins at the top. So what you want to do is take the cutting pliers and cut some of it off. you want to have just about a quarter of an inch left up at the top.

STEP 4. Once you have step 3 done, you have to take the round nose pliers and grab the excess metal at the top with the pliers and curve it so it makes a loop. Dont worry it wont be perfect. It took me a while to get it perfect.

STEP 5. This will be the last step for #2. So now all you have to do is take an ear hook and open up the loop at the bottom with the round nose pliers and attach the beaded eye or head pin to it. Then you have to close it. You pretty much just have to do it the same way you open it but instead of pulling it open you have to push it closed. After you get that done you have one earring done for the #2 type of earring. Then you just have to do the same exact steps for the next earring.

STEP 6. Ok these last three steps are just for the #1 type of earrings. So now your sitting here with a earring with a loop at the bottom thinking "now what am i supposed to do". Well i'll tell you. So now you have to take a head pin and get another pattern (little amount i suggest) of beads. Then you will put those on the head pin.

STEP 7. Again you should have some extra metal at the top of the head pin and you want to use the cutting pliers and cut but leave a quarter of an inch on it. Then make a loop with the needle nose pliers at the top of the head pin.

STEP 8. Finally you have to take the eye pin loop on the bottom and open it up, not very far though because then your beads will fall off. Then attach that to the top of the head pin. After that again close the loop like how i told you earlier. Then you are all done with one earring. You just have to redo these steps for the next earring.

I hope this all helped you guys. This was my first hub so bear with me here. If you enjoyed it please comment and become a follower. Thank you for reading this!
