I don't usually wear jewelries that much but recently I've started wearing ear studs. I'm in love with ear studs now, mainly because they're simple and cute. Anyways, this means that I need loads of and different kinds of ear studs. so I didn't wait and made a few pairs right away.
These ear stud is very easy to make and simple. This could be a nice gift for those who like to wear simple jewelries :)

P.S. You'll need to check if you're allergic to copper wire or usual craft wire before making these.

Step 1: Materials Needed

To make these ear studs you'll need:
  1. Craft wire- 18 gauge, (copper, golden or silver),
  2. Craft pliers- cutting, flat nose and looping pliers,
  3. Eraser or rubber- to make the earring backs,
  4. X-acto knife.
<p>these are cute, i wish i was working good with wire :( too bad, i mess up when i work with wires, (sigh)</p>
<p>Thanks hun! I wasn't good at making wire jewelries even last year, had to practice a lot. But TBH, I've been practicing henna art for years but still no good... your henna art is the best :)</p>
<p>Thank you :) you made my day, its not easy, years and years of practice, more than 10 years. i cant work with wires because i don't have jewelry making pliers and needed things, and in Sri lanka where i live, its really difficult to get good supplies.</p>
<p>Cute! The eraser idea is really neat! </p>
<p>Ohw, thanks shazni! I'm really happy you like it :)</p>
Cute! Love the light wire earrings!!
<p>Thank you Abigail! :)</p>
<p>These are adorable, and what a smart idea for earring backs. One thing I would point out is how many people are sensitive to metals that aren't stainless steel, titanium, actual silver or gold. Keep an eye on how they feel; metal allergies, sensitivities and other reactions can come on quickly and cause some health issues. </p><p>Precious metal wires may be safer, but I know they are much more expensive. Anyway, that's my two bits. The earrings are very cute, and you did a good job of showing how they're made. </p>
<p>Thanks so much! I'm glad everyone liked the rubber earring back!</p><p>Thank you for the suggestions, I totally forgot to write about the metal allergies and sensitivities, thanks for pointing it out. I myself had to check if I'm allergic to copper craft wire after making the first pair, luckily I'm not!</p><p>Thanks again!</p>
Incredible job!! These are great. I need a pair these of these, time to check my supplies. I love your creativity. I don't think there could ever be too many swirls lol They are one of my favs!!
<p>Thanks! once you have all the materials (craft wire &amp; craft pliers) you won't be able to stop yourself from making wire jewelries, they always turn out so cute. </p><p>Thanks again!</p>
<p>You couldn't resist :) That's a very cute design. And I totally agree with the girls below :)</p>
<p>Yap, I couldn't! Thanks a bunch!</p>
<p>Oww, these are so adorably cute Muhaiminah!!!</p>
<p>Thanks sooo much emily! :D</p>
<p>So cute! The back made with rubber is ingenious! I wish I knew about this some months ago...I had to make some ear studs so I got a pack of ear studs backs (bars included) and glued the piece I made on them...I thought you did the same before I saw your whole ible! Great job Muhaiminah!! :)</p>
<p>Thanks linda! While making the first stud earring I kept thinking about how to make the earring backs, I can't thank enough to the pencil (with eraser) on my table :p </p><p>Use rubber or eraser to make earring backs from now on, I lose earring backs a lot so I think the rubber earring backs is the best in this case. </p><p>Glad you like'em :)</p>
You are really the swirl queen of this community...! ;)<br>I love these cute little studs.
<p>Thank you so much sis! I can't think of wire jewelries without swirls! :p</p>
