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.
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...
