  • How to make a pair of shell earrings. Diy Shell Earrings - Step 1
    Step 1

    Mark the spot for making a hole on the shell. Place the sea shell on a wooden board. Gently rotate the awl on the marked spot and apply pressure carefully. Once a small hole is made you can stop rotating the awl. Now, turn the shell around. Use the awl carefully to enlarge the hole and give it a smooth round shape. Similarly make hole on another sea shell, we'll need two of them since we're making earrings.

    I used faux pearl beads. Choose the pearl bead of your choice (white, off-white, cream color look great!). Simply glue the pearl bead on the center of the shell as shown in the picture of this step. Allow the glue to dry in case you're using white glue or craft glue.

So pretty. I've been meaning to go to the beach and collect some shells for ages but the summer hasn't even started in Scotland yet.
