Introduction: Lego Earring
We were heading to Brickfest this year and I wanted to make something for the event. Lego earrings seemed perfect.
These were designed to be able to have easily changable "gems" to match whatever outfit she may want to wear, but it would be easy enough to take this and make any sort of Lego earring style from it.
Step 1: Stuff You'll Need
So, this is pretty flexible here in what you'd need for this, but it boils down to:
Earring loops (or some other small ring)
Lego blocks depending on what you want the earring to look like
I bought a small variety back of loops for a few other projects. The size of loop you'll want will depend on the looks you want and the size of the block you're connecting to. I used the 1/8" loops for the earrings here.
Step 2: Glue the Backs
Super glue the rings to the small metal loops. You'll want enough of the loop to be above the top of the Lego block to be able to get the earring back in the hole.
Also, if it's important to you, double check to make sure that "Lego" is right side up on the top of the studs.
Step 3: Add Earring Back
Let the glue dry well, then take a pair of needlenose pliers or similar and use them to open up the loop in the earring back.
Once open, slip it through the hole in the loop attached to the Lego block.
Then, carefully reclose the loop in the earring back.
Step 4: Add Flair
Once the main piece is finished, add any accessory parts you want to the Lego block (if any).
Then, surprise your girlfriend and go to your favorite Lego convention. Or just a night on the town.
