{Simple, DIY Silver Earrings}

Hey, y'all!  I LOVE jewelry.  I think I probably have an addiction.  I buy it way too often.  But one of the great things about being a crafter is that I can make my own jewelry--often for pennies!  I always go for the bold, colorful earrings when I buy them, so normally when I try to find plain earrings to put on in the morning, I have a little bit of trouble.  I decided to make my own pair of plain earrings that will definitely be a "go-to" pair for me now.
These earrings are seriously super easy to make.  (Not as easy as my simple silver bracelet or maybe even my silver and suede bracelet, but still easy.)  You only need a few materials to make them.
The supplies above make one earring, so, of course, you need double of what's in the picture.  You need two earring hooks, two small silver hoops, two large silver hoops, and four jump rings large enough for your two hoops to fit in.  Because of the way jewelry supplies are sold, when you buy the supplies you'll have enough for several pairs of earrings.
To make the earrings, take a pair of jewelry pliers and open your jump rings.  Attach the large and small hoops to a jump ring and close the jump ring.  Then attach the small hoop to the earring hook with a jump ring and close.  Repeat for the other earring, and that's seriously all it takes to have a brand new pair of earrings!
I like big earrings (and I cannot lie...sorry...I just had to), and these earrings are big, but not obnoxiously big.
And since they're silver, they'll go with just about any outfit you wear.  So go ahead and make a pair for yourself.  You'll be happy you did...except for when your friends see them and like them, and you tell them you made them, and then you have to make them a pair, and then their friend wants a pair...

  8. Hi, Bethany

    These turned out great!! How easy too. I just need to make myself a pair. As away, enjoyed stopping by. Have a great week.


  9. You're right, the simple things are often harder to come up with. Most of the time when I need something simple, it's probably pearls. But I love yours too, they will look great with any outfit!

  10. so pretty! and the photos are amazing!

  11. I LOVE this! I've been making jewelry for about a year now, but some of my favorite pieces are like this, simple and elegant. I would never have thought to do this with rings, great job! I'm Pinning it to my jewelry board, and I'm now following you on bloglovin, twitter, Pinterest and FB! I checked our your recycled vase too, and I think I'm going to do that as a craft with my kids this week for the 4th.
