Hoops with small gemstone beads

 

We used the following DIY materials to make these earrings:

1 pair of hoops, 20mm, gilded sterling silver

8 crimp beads, gold-plated sterling silver

18 various small gemstone beads, 3mm

18 headpins with 1.5mm plate, gold-plated sterling silver

+ round-nose pliers

+ chain-nose pliers

+ flat-nose pliers

+ cutting pliers

 

You start by threading each gemstone on a headpin. Then you form an eyelet with windings over every bead (see our jewellery guide on how to make a loop over a bead or pearl). 

Finally, you insert alternately a gemtone bead and a crimp bead into the hoop.

 

 

Earstuds with coral bead clusters

 

We used the following DIY materials to make these earrings:

1 pair of earstuds, brushed leaf with eyelet, gilded sterling-silver

2 coral beads, 5mm

10 coral beads, 4mm

12 headpins with 1.5mm plate, gold-plated sterling silver

4 jumprings, 4mm, gilded sterling silver

+ round-nose-pliers

+ chain-nose pliers

+ flat-nose pliers

+ cutting pliers

 

 

First, you thread each bead on a headpin, then you assemble the beads in jumprings  When the cluster is done, you carefully open the eyelet of the earstud, insert the bead cluster and close the eyelet again. You find step-by-step instructions on how to assemble the beads in our blog post on Earrings with bead clusters.  

 

 

Earstuds with coin and pearls

 

We used the following DIY materials to make these earrings:

1 pair of earstuds with 4mm pad, gold-plated sterling silver

2 hammered coins with hole, 8mm, gold-plated sterling silver

various small freshwater pearls

2 headpins with 1.5mm plated, gold-plated sterling silver

approx. 30cm wire 0.4mm, gold-plated sterling silver

+ jewellery glue

+ round-nose pliers

+ chain-nose pliers

+ flat-nose pliers

+ cutting pliers

 

You thread the bead which is going to hang lowerst on a headpin and form an eyelet with windings (click here for instructions on how to make an eyelet). The gemstone links of the chain are connected with eyelets and windings as well. Please read our blog post Earrings with gemstone bead links for step-be-step instructions.

 

You finish the chain by forming a loop over the pearl which is going to hang highest and inserting the coin into the loop before making the windings.

Finally, you glue the earstud on the back of the coin. 

 

Earstuds with rectangles, pearl and beads

 

We used the following DIY materials to make these earrings:

1 pair of earstuds with 4mm pad, gold-plated sterling silver

2 brushed rectangles, 12x6mm, gold-plated sterling silver

2 brushed rectangles, 8x4mm, gold-plated sterling silver

2 stk. ferskvandsperler

4 small gemstone beads, 3mm

approx. 30cm wire 0.4mm, gold-plated sterling silver (approx. 5cm per bead)

+ jewellery glue

+ round-nose pliers

+ chain-nose pliers

+ flat-nose pliers

+ cutting pliers

 

Insert the small rectangle into the first loop before making the windings. The following beads and pearls are connected with the help of loops and windings. Please read our blog post Earrings with gemstone bead links for step-by-step instructions. 

Insert the large rectangle into the last loop, before you make the windings.

Finally, you glue the earstud on the back of the large rectangle.

 

Earstuds with baroque pearls

 

We used the following DIY materials to make these earrings:

1 pair of earstuds with 6mm pad, gold-plated sterling silver

2 large baroque pearls

2 half-drilled freshwater pearls, 10x6mm

4 eyepins, 10x0.8mm, gold-plated sterling silver

+ jewellery glue

 

You start by gluing the first eyepin into the large baroque pearl. Then you open the eyepin's eyelet carefully and insert the second eyelet. After that, you glue the second eyepin into half-drilled freshwater pearl. The two pearls are now connected.

Finally, you glue the earstud on the large baroque pearl. Instead of the earstuds with 6mm plate, you can use earstuds with 4mm cup

Additionally, you can close the hole on the bottom of the pearl by gluing the top of a headpin with 1.5mm plate into the hole.
