I haven’t done any crafting for a long time – too busy with work and school. But now that my ear piercings are finally healed enough to start wearing things other than my starter studs, I’ve gotten really into earrings! And I’ve started making my own. I’m unsure about this pair, though…it’s the first pair I made. I got the base gold tone hoops from a set of 2 other earrings from Forever21. Don’t you hate it when earrings come in sets and you really hate one pair in the set? That was what these hoops were like for me in this set.
So wanting to spice the hoops up, I went on youtube and got the idea from this youtube video, but instead of silver hooks I used the gold hoops. The beads are different too. It’s always fun to see tutorials online and charge it up with your own creativity! For the materials I just took apart some old crafts that I didn’t want anymore. The end result looks quite different, but I don’t know – think mine work?
I was really clumsy when making these, I had the greatest trouble with the crimp beads! I need more practice.
Although where I live, it’s always raining, and these can’t be worn out in the rain.
