Being a fan of statement jewellery, I used to dislike stud earrings. Too… discreet I thought. But recently, I’ve taken another look at them. They’re actually very versatile! By switching the back of the stud, the same pair of earrings looks totally different.
Take 1: normal stud earring
Take 2: the same earring but with a DIY-ed back
What do you think?
You can do any number of things to the backers! (Not necessarily always a rock/ punk look!) I’ve already shown you how to make the one above in my Graduation Ball earrings tutorial so, today, I’ll demonstrate another back. Actually it may have made more sense to model those instead! LOL OK re-shoot tomorrow once the sun is back up 🙂
What you need:
- pair of earring backs
- Jump ring
- 3 spikes
Open the jump ring. Slide 1 loop of the earring back through then follow it with the 3 spikes. Close tightly with the pliers.
DONE! See how easy that was? 🙂 And I have just the necklace to go with it too! Actually that necklace would work well as the handle of a black clutch bag, don’t you think?
