One of the things that we all love about making our own jewelry is that we can customize it to make it exactly the way we like. But sometimes it’s nice to be able to make something quick and easy, so how can we still customize those pieces?

Today I’ll show you how to make a quick pair of beachy earrings with tips for how you can customize them every step of the way.

First of all, you can make your own ear wires. For more information on that check out my Friday Findings Making Decorative Ear Wires video.

Next, instead of using purchased bead caps you can do some quick messy wraps with wire to make completely unique accents for your beads.

And finally, you can customize purchased charms by applying Gilders paste in colors of your choice.

So have fun making quick and easy and yet perfectly personal earrings!

  1. Oh, these are to die for. Love that deep turquoise!

  2. A so deep blue earrings like the sea and thank you so much Sandy because I wanted to buy bead caps and thanks to you I will use your clever technic.
    Can I use copper wire? Marie 🙂

    • Glad you like the idea, Marie! While they don’t exactly take the place of bead caps, they serve a similar function. You can use any wire you like: craft wire, copper, sterling silver, fine silver, whatever suits you.
