Today, The Wedding Cat is teaming up with Toni, from Woerner Crafts at Amazon Handmade to bring you an easy DIY earring and necklace set. You may choose to do this project with rose pearl and rose gold elements (as pictured), or you can do regular white pearls with gold or silver elements.  Personally I think the rose pearls look very chic.

Supplies needed – easy peezy.

 

To make the earrings:
  • Get 3 of the eye pins. 2 of the 3 will need to be cut down, and 1 remains its original length.  Measure 1/4 inch, and mark. Take the 3rd pin and measure out 1/2 in, and mark.

  • Grab one of the jump rings. Using the needle nose pliers and the round nose pliers, open the jump ring by moving the two ends away from each other without disturbing the ring.  This is the proper way to open and close a jump ring.  See photo.

To make the necklace:

You’ve already got your 3 pearl pins ready, and on a jump ring…

  • Measure and cut your necklace, making sure that the pendant will fall at your desired length when added. Connect the jump ring to the 2 ends of the chain, and then close it up.

  • If your necklace needs a closure, use a jump ring to connect a lobster claw or any other type of closure.  If desired, you may add an additional pearl to the end of the chain as shown below:
