Boho Stone Earrings





Introduction: Boho Stone Earrings

About: I am a teacher outside of Boston and I love making cool stuff! Any prizes I'm lucky enough to win will go directly to my classroom (when appropriate) where I teach 6-12th grade English & Social Studies (...

Making your own gemstone stud earrings is super easy and this Instructable will show you how to make them in minutes :)

Step 1: BoM

Raw stones

Earring posts and backings


Step 2: Stones

I have bunch of small blue apatite and peacock ore stones. Both stones are fairly inexpensive and easy to get on eBay and Etsy. Additionally, they're both pretty lightweight so they won't make your ears hurt.

Using your earring studs to help, find two similar size and shape stones for your earrings.

Step 3: Glue

Once you have your stones selected, add some epoxy to the flat side of the stud and press onto the stone. If you need to, use metal cutters or something that can trim the edges of the earring base.

Step 4: Done!

Try them on and go!

    This is an interesting idea. Living in Michigan as I do which has historic copper mining areas, I see the peacock ore available in most gift shops in tourist locations really cheap. Wikipedia had this about the ore:

    "Bornite, also known as peacock ore, is a sulfide mineral with chemical composition Cu5FeS4 that crystallizes in the orthorhombic system (pseudo-cubic)."
