Succulent Earrings

Jewelry can be so simple and easy to make! Even cute jewelry like these little Succulent Earrings! They take very little time to make, and you don’t need to be a master jewelry maker to whip up a pair for yourself or as a gift for a friend who loves succulents!

This project was made as part of Craft Lightning Week. All week long my friends Angie from The Country Chic Cottage and Morena from Morena’s Corner are sharing crafts that can be made in 15 minutes or less – all using clay pots! Which is where I got the idea for these succulent earrings – by finding these cute mini clay pots!

I bought my beads at Michael’s, but you can find whatever beads you like that look the most like succulents to you. I thought these looked like fun little cacti and would look perfect sitting in my little clay pot.

Go ahead and plug in your hot glue gun to get it warmed up.

String an eye pin onto your large crystal.

string eye pin

Twist the excess wire around the barrel of round-nosed pliers. You can start with a tight spiral, but it will sit more securely in the glue if you stretch out the spiral.

twist wire

Put two of the smaller crystals onto a headpin. Twist the wire just like you did with the large crystal.

twist up wire

Fill the pot with hot glue, up to the bottom of the rim.

Before the glue cools, push both the twisted wires into the glue. Position the succulents the way you like before the glue cools. Watch the direction that the eye pin is going. You’ll want it facing the front of the earring.

insert jewels

Use the jump rings to attach the earring wire to the top of the eye pin. Repeat making a second earring that is a mirror image of the first.
