With Valentine’s Day coming up I thought I’d share how to make these cute heart stud earrings. They are super simple and you will only need three materials.
Here’s the materials you need to make these earrings:
The tool set I’m using in the video is the 6 Piece Chroma Plier Set. It’s so very cool. If you would like to know more, you can see it here.
Watch the video or read the instructions below.
Cut a piece of wire about 7cm (2/5”) long. Use the nylon jawed pliers to straighten it if necessary.
Make sure you have a flush cut, then make a small loop in the end of the wire. If you haven’t made loops before, please watch this video for extra tips.
Hold the loop you just made between the jaws of your bail making pliers using the smallest size. Wrap the wire around the plier so that it’s facing down. Pull it slightly over so that it forms the first half of the heart.
Using the flat nosed pliers, twist the loop so that it’s sitting flat with the wire.
Thread on eight of the seed beads.
Using your chain nose or flat nose pliers, make a bend right at the bottom of the beads. Manipulate the wire until it looks like the bottom of the heart.
Use the bail making pliers as before to shape the top curve of the heart. Where the wire meets the first loop, make a bend so that end of the wire is pointing away from the loop.
Make a right angle bend in the wire where it intersects with the loop.
Cut the wire to approximately 1cm (0.39”). If the loop is sitting in front of the wire end, push it back so that the loop is behind the end. Pull back gently until you can push the end of the wire through the heart.
Manipulate the wire until it looks how you want it to look.
The last thing you need to do is file the end of the wire so that it doesn’t scratch the inside of your ear.
Then, of course, repeat the entire process to make another earring.
If you watched the video you will see that I was wearing my wire heart chandelier earrings.
The necklace I was wearing is my silver foil necklace.
