Rockin' Rhinestone Earrings {DIY}

Happy Tuesday friends!
Are we happy we made it past Monday or what?
Supplies:
  1. Fish hook earrings
  2. Small Cylinder shaped item (I used a spray cap)
  3. Metal wrapping wire (I believe mine is 24 guage)
  4. Chain
  5. Jump rings
  6. Eye Pins
  7. Rhinestone chain (and their connecters) 
  8. Round Nose Pliers
  9. Flat Nose Pliers
  10. Wire Cutters
Step One: Cut your rhinestone chain into equal sections. I cut 6 sections... 3 for each earring. You can do more if you want!
Then attach their connecters using the flat nose pliers.
Step Two: Again using the flat nose pliers attach the jump rings to the connecters on the rhinestones.
Step Three: Using the wire cutters, cut up your chain into several equal segments. You can do as much or as little as you want.
Step Four: Take your eye pins and using the round nose pliers create another loop or "eye" at the other end. (if you dont know how to make an eye pin... check out this how to video)
Step Five: Take the eye pins you just created and cut them in half!
Step Six: Create some kind of order or patten with your eye pins, chain, & rhinestones. In the photo below, that is the pattern I created to go on EACH earring.
Step Seven: Cut your wire, and "string" your items through keeping the pattern you created.
Step Eight: Wrap wire around your cylinder, and twist.
Step Nine: Using your round nose pliers create a loop, and the continue to wrap/twist remainder of wire around below loop.
Last thing to do is use your flat nose pliers and a jump ring to attach your earring hoops to the earring hooks!
And now you've got yourself some new rockin rhinestone and chain earrings!!
You can create a bigger or smaller hoop, depending on what you use to make the hoop.
You can also add more of less of any of the items used (Chain, Rhinestones, Eye Pins).
You could also use colored chain or different colored rhinestones too, to make a new look!

Thanks for stopping by friends!

I would LOVE to see how YOURS turn out.

Much Love & Hugs,

    1. I would assume you could color regular chain yourself by using nail polish!? lol But I know you can also buy colored chain too... Ive seen it around different places. :)
