I saw the this Marc Jacobs handbag while flipping through a magazine and loved the details of it. I thought the pearls on the safety pins would make a cool pair earrings. I looked on their website to see if they had an earring in this style, they did. The price point was a little high for an item I may use once for a photo shoot, so I figured I could make an inspired pair with items already in my crafting supplies.

Step 1: Materials

2 Fish hook earring posts

2 Safety pins

2 Jump rings

Pearl beads - I used 6 mm and 8 mm

Jewelry pliers

Step 2: Placing the Pearls

Open the safety pin and place the pearls to your liking. Make sure to leave enough space to close the safety pin.

Step 3: Building the Earring

Open a jump ring and place the safety pin and earring post in it. Close the jump ring.

Step 4: Enjoy Your New Earrings!

That's it!

<p>I saw the price too, $95 for a safety pin with faux breads... </p><p>Very neat idea and instructable.</p>
Thanks!
