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!
