|Silver-shimmering studded earrings with teardrop danggle|
Difficulty : Beginner
Time Required : About 30minutes to 1hour (Depends on the type of adhesive you will be using)
|From top to bottom:|
1. Sew-on flat backs in Silver & Gray (make 2 pairs)
2. Ear studs & Ear nuts
3. Teardrop crystal beads & silver seed beads (size 8)
4. Headpins(30mm) & Jump rings(not shown above)
Use Epoxy Glue or Super Glue to adhere the ear studs
behind the sew-on flat backs.
|Set aside & allow the adhesive to dry thoroughly.|
|Put one teardrop crystal followed by a silver bead onto|
a 30mm headpin.
|Make a wrap loop using jewelry pliers. Repeat for the |
other teardrop crystal.
(Kindly refer Techniques to make a "wrap loop")
|Open a jump ring using jewelry pliers (here I'm |
showing with tweezers for photography purpose).
|Attach jump ring at the other hole of the sew-on.|
|Add in the teardrop crystal before closing the jump ring.|
Repeat with the other side.
|Viola! Mission completed! I think the gray sew-on looks|
simple & elegant without any add-ons.

The silver pair looks great for formal events while the gray pair looks good for both formal & informal functions. I'm using plastic ear studs because they are less prone to cause skin allergies.
Happy making! Hope you like these simple earrings.
Happy Holidays to all Christian bloggers, crafters & friends.
