Stud and Pearl Earrings

There is something about the combination of studs and pearls – the combination of edgy and classy – that I just love. Earlier this week I showed you how to make a studs and pearls bracelet, and today I’m going to show you how to make studs and pearls earrings. You can wear them together, or just one. And if studs and pearls aren’t your style, I’ll also show you how to omit the pearls.

I’ve shared a whole bunch of stud crafting projects this week, but if you’re more into the flesh-and-bone studs… you should go check out the studs on CraftSnark this week. Plenty of eye candy there.

The supplies for both are simple. Here’s a full supply list, with affiliate links, to help you out:
Long spike beads
Fish hook earring wires
Eye Pin
Jewelry Pliers
Round Pearl Beads

Making the earrings without pearls is super simple. Start by opening the jump ring that is holding the spike bead onto the chain.

To add the pearls is the same, just adding a pearl . Start by stringing the pearl onto the eye pin.

Make a loop under the pearl using your round-nosed pliers.

Depending on your mood, you can wear one or the other… if you’re feeling fancy and frisky… or just plain frisky. Both stud earrings and stud and pearl earrings are fun to wear!
