So this is the first video I uploaded in YouTube, I don’t really know what I’m supposed to write or do now, I will have to figure it out in the go.
I saw a pair of earrings that are the inspiration for this first DIY in a jewelry store, in Paris, I think it was, and immediately knew I was gonna be able to recreate them for a few pennies instead of paying the $50 they were. Ok, they were made with silver so it kinda justifies the price, but mine still work the same way as the original. I’ll post the video at the end of the post so you can check it out, but now, here I want to explain a little more the whole process, I mean the 2 minutes it took me to made them both.
I used a blue wire because it was a leftover I had, not long enough to be able to do something else with it, but for this project was perfect. And because I love the color of it. Any way, you can choose whatever you like or have around the house, if you do.
The pliers I used have the round nose, because I think they are perfect for jewelry since you can make perfectly round loops with it, but for this DIY you can use the ones you already have, if you don’t have these kind of pliers.
There’s nothing much to say about the glue, you can use whatever you have, as long as it is strong enough.
And the earring posts [that’s how I know them] I had these concave ones, because those were like the only ones I could find at the craft store. The rest it’s pretty well seeing in the video so I’m not going to be boring you with my writing for much long.
1 – Start twisting the wire with the pliers until you have enough to keep working with your fingers.
2 – When you finish make a loop at the end of the wire and hide it.
3 – Glue it to the earring post and let it dry overnight.
And that’s it! Here it goes the video.

If you like working with wire, I also made some extremely easy rings you may like. Have you ever seen something expensive easily DIYable?
