I’ve had this tutorial in my phone for a few months but it must’ve slipped my eyes to post this up! Here I wanted to make drop earrings using one of my current favourite items: rhinestones!
Do read below for the DIY tutorial:
What you need:
- Round nose pliers
- Flat noise pliers
- Pliers that can cut wire / scissors
- 8 oval rhinestones
- 4 headpins
- 4 small round beads
- 2 jumprings
- 2 earring hooks
Thread one headpin through one end of the rhinestone.
Thread a second headpin through the other hole on the rhinestone backing.
Thread the remaining 3 other rhinestones through the 2 headpins.
Use the flat nosed pliers and make a 90 degree twist inwards.
Use your round nosed pliers to make a loop at the ends. If the headpin is too long, snip the extra bits off!
The rhinestones should like the above now.
Attach a jumpring through the loops you’ve made. Here I’ve added beads to fill up the spaces in between as well!
Slip the earring hook through the jumpring before closing the jumpring.
Voila! Try making gemstone drop earrings in other various colourways! Enjoy! x
