|Sorry about the quality of these pictures! My camera was just not cooperating that day.|
and how easy they are to make!
It all started when I pinned these earrings about 2 months ago:
I picked out smaller pearls and made my posts a little longer. Looking back, I would probably make my posts a little shorter (I still like the dainty pearl size) as they are super long but they're still fun and I'll probably wear them anyway.
So let's gather our supplies. We'll need:
• 6 "pearls"
• two french hooks
You'll also need:
• a pair of wire cutters
• a pair of earring pliers. They have rounded prongs so we can get the circles just right (needle nose won't work.)
• Possibly another pair of pliers to open the circles.
• A ruler or other measuring device
My measuring device was a piece of paper that was an inch long. Ha! I measured each post to be an inch long where I bent and made the loop. Not sure how to make earring loops? I don't want to beat a dead horse (there are so many great tutorials out there!), so I'll link to a tutorial on making a earring loop.
I made each beginning post.
Thanks for following along!
P.S. Where was I last Friday?
I was out of town last Friday and I unfortunately missed last Friday's post! Usually I schedule something if I'm going to be OOT but I had nothing and time crept up on me. Sorry about that guys!
