Before I show these to you, let me just start by saying no. I have not seen Doctor Who…
But I knew my friend was a fan, so I decided to make her some fan gear for her birthday. After searching around for a bit I came across some earrings that looked like this and decided to try making my own with the materials I had on hand…
And yes, I had to make a doctor hair bow for her too…
I loosely followed THIS tutorial for the bow, and like I said used what I had for the earrings. I think she really liked them!
I made these earrings a while ago and haven’t worn them in a looong time. I didn’t remember how much I liked them! Makes sense that I made two pairs right?!? Yay for forgotten projects!
I attached a short length of chain to an ear wire. I then used flexible wire to add short “strings” of beads to the chain and secured them with crimps on alternating links. Essentially each “string” is a piece of wire with the center bent at the link, then put the beads over “both” wires and crimp ends together. Alternate links so that the “strings” lay on both sides of the chain.
I get inspired some days to make a TON of whatever I’m working on… stacking bracelets, knit coasters, drawings, earrings. I just had an earring day, I made five pairs!!! The sad part is I will probably not feel like making earrings for a while now…
Two pairs that I gave as a gift…
The other three…
It has taken me a while to get into feathers… mostly because I didn’t think they went with my curly hair. But I think they do work with curls! Yay, I’m experimenting.:) So, I found these feathers buried in a closet (with some help, thanks mom!) and got right to making a pair of earrings.
- Two ear wires
- four crimp beads (big enough to fit the wire and feather in together)
- A small amount of wire
- A few accent beads
- The two feathers
I made a loop with the wire and twisted them a bit to make a stopping point, and then put the beads on. To secure the feather all you have to do is put the crimp beads on the wire and then slide the feather in the crimps. Then I just attached the ear wires. It only took about 20 min.!!!
I hope I don’t start wearing them too much, ’cause I love ‘em!
I made these earrings a while back when I first started to experiment with chain. Just simple chain on ear wires, yet somehow they are very delicate… I like them!:) Since then chain has become a favorite with me and my jewelry making endeavors!
The other day I was wearing an outfit with red in it, but I don’t have too many pieces of red jewelry. So after thinking about how little time I had left before leaving for church I decided to make a quick pair of red earrings.
I love how they turned out! Red and simple.:)
