The other day I broke one of my favorite large hoop earrings and just because I hate throwing stuff out I figured a way to turn them in to a pair of new and even better earrings.
And I took pictures so I can show you! :)
Things you will need:
-a pair of hoop earring or two wire bangles (if you don't have these at hand,you can always use some thick wire)
-thin wire in colors of choice
Let's get started!
Bend the earrings (or wire) to the shape you want. I used a parfume bottle to get the shape.You can leave it the way it is too. :)
Get your thin jewelry wire and wrap the earrings with it. You don't want to leave this step out,this will keep the thin wire from slipping around on your earrings.
Make a loop for the earring hooks.
Start wrapping the colored wire on the earrings.
When you are done with one color,be sure to wrap the wire many times to secure it.
Add colors as you go. I used light purple,purple and dark blue wire.
Add the earring hooks to the loop you made on the beggining and you are done! :)
You made something awesome from something plain and boring.Enjoy!
