Stop buying all your crafty, unique jewelry from overpriced Williamsburg boutiques. Here is a quick way to make some cute ear candy.
Things you will need:
- Chain-nose pliers ($7.79)
- Round-nose pliers ($7.79)
- Jump Rings (Assorted Prices)
- Eye Pins (Assorted Prices)
- Cool Looking Paper Clips ($3.99)
- Ear Wires (Assorted Prices)
Step Two: As you hold the Eye Pin with your Chain-Nose Pliers, wrap the wire down towards the bead with your finger. Tighten with the Round-Nose Pliers.
(Note: The image is of a Head-Pin….pretend it’s an Eye Pin.)
Step Three: Open the end of the Eye Pin and add your Ear Wires, then close it. Tighten with the Round-Nose Pliers.
Step Four: Take the other end of your Eye Pin, open it, add the edge of your amazing paper clip, and tighten.
Step Five: Make sure all the pointed wire edges are pushed down.
Here’s a great tutorial on how you open and close your jump rings with pliers!
