These earrings have become my newest crafting obsession! I want to make a pair for me, my daughter, my sister, etc.. I tried out a couple different methods and because a pictures sometimes explains it better than my words can the following tutorial is, um, very visual.
This was the first technique is below, it creates a looser earrings meaning the washers twist easily.
Technique two, below, created a much tighter earring, the washers barely moved. However, it was hard to cover the connections. While I preferred technique one my daughter liked the second better, go figure.
Whichever technique you chose when it comes time to connect the actual earring all I did was tie it on. Just be sure that if your earring has a ‘back’ side you tie the earring on so that it will hang correctly.
I can’t wait to make more of these as Christmas gifts! I’m thinking we might also have to make a necklace or two!
