  • How to make a pair of button earrings. Lace & Button Earrings - Step 1
    Step 1

    Using your chain nose pliers gently open a 9 mm jump ring. Connect two buttons with the jump ring and close securely. Repeat to create a total of 4 2-button sections and 2 3-button sections.

  • Step 2

    Using your chain nose pliers open a 7 mm jump ring and use it to attach a 3-button section to the point of one of the filigree pieces. Attach a 2-button section to each adjacent point of the filigree. Make sure your jump rings are closed securely.

  • Step 3

    Using your chain nose pliers open a 7 mm jump ring and use it to attach a single button to the remaining point of the filigree. Thread a 9 mm jump ring through the adjacent holes in the button.

  • Step 4

    Using your chain nose pliers open a 5 mm jump ring and thread it through the ring on a leverback ear wire and then through each of the 9 mm jump rings on the button as shown. Close securely. Repeat to make the remaining earring.
