In this instructable, you'll see how I turned old belt buckles into earrings.
Step 1: Materials Needed
- Old Belt Buckles
- Cotton Thread
- Glass Beads - glass beads were handcrafted by me, however you can use any beads of your choice.
- Seed Beads
- Earrings Pins and Hooks
- Glue - super glue, Epoxy, or E6000
- Jewelry Pliers - your of choice which pliers work best for you when crafting
Step 2: Let's Begin by Wrapping
Using jewelry pliers (round nose), wrap earring pin completely around, leaving a loop on the corner tip of buckle.
Step 3: Adding Cotton Thread
Tie a knot, then wrap cotton thread slow and neatly around buckle. Add a tip of glue occasionally to secure cotton in place. Note: I used Scotch create super glue, however you can use E6000 or Epoxy.
Step 4: Adding Earring Pins, Seed Beads, and Glass Beads
Using round nose jewelry pliers, take earring pin and double loop it by wire wrapping one end, add beads like a pattern (seed bead, glass bead, seed bead) then repeat wire wrap. Cut off excess with jewelry pliers (cutters).
