Earring Backs

Today on Delirium Style I will show you how to make customized earring backs. If you haven’t noticed I tend to wear two different earrings which is mainly why this DIY persistently came to mind. Usually I will wear a stud and a longer earring so I have a few extra earring studs lying around that I forget I have or just keep incase one is lost. However, you can make two pairs of each tutorial if you wear both earrings and wish to try this DIY.

First things first. You will need:

  • thin gold chain
  • earring backs
  • jewelry pliers
  • small charms and beads
  • small jump ringsearring backs

To make the first pair, grab your chain and cut three strings: two longer ones and a shorter piece. Then grab 4 small jump rings. Have one for all three pieces to go through and one on each end of the chains.

Then, grab your small charms and attach to each end and make sure to tightly close each ring. Finally, grab an earring back and attach it to the ring holding all three chains together and close it tightly.DSC_0060 DSC_0065 DSC_0069 earring backs

For the next two you will need earring pins and beads. I used small turquoise colored squares and a small white ball bead.

Grab your first pin and fill it up with your beads and make sure you leave some space to twist in the ends. Once it’s filled and you twist the end, grab a small jump ring and attach to the pin along with an earring back.DSC_0082DSC_0083DSC_0088

Finally for the last pin, take a pin and insert your 1 bead. Then, twist the end and place a small jump ring attached with an earring back . Lastly, bend the pin outward, slightly curved.

This would be a such cute gift for a friend and will barely cost you a thing. Let me know if you tried it out and show me how yours turned out!
