I hadn’t really planned on making earrings for my friend’s birthday gift. But then I remmebered that I had this silver star charms and knew that I wanted to use them for something. They’re a little small to be more than accents on a bracelet or a necklace, so I decided that earrings would be the way to go, that way they’d also be the main attraction of the piece itself.

The charms and beads are upcycled and antiqued silver fishhooks were used.

What’s a girl to do when she wants something simple to do to pass the time as a (short!) study break? Obviously, make some earrings!

First up is silver plated wire-wrapped stars paired with red pearls and base metal findings (eyepins and fish hooks).


Next is upcycled wire-wrapped stars with curled wire and glass translucent blue seed beads. Antiqued silver fishhooks and base-metal jumprings.


Group shot! The blue stars are larger than the silver plated stars.
