I made these stud earrings for my mom as a Mothers day gift :)
These stud earrings are fairly easy to make and they don't take much time.

  • How to make a pair of wire earrings. Wire Wrapped Bead Studs - Step 1
    Step 1

    Firstly measure the size of the bead you're going to use and keep that in mind.

    Hold the wire from one end but do not cut it from the bundle,
    Use the flat nose plier to bend the wire into 90 degrees, according to the bead size.
    I used 8 mm pearl bead so I had to bend 8 mm wire to 90 degrees.

    I wrapped the wire 3 times around the bead and kept the wire flat while wrapping but you can wrap over and over again if you want a thicker wire border around the bead.

    Step 7

    I used an eraser or rubber to make the earring backs.
    Use x-acto knife to cut the eraser into small square pieces.
    Carefully push and screw the stem of the ear stud on the small eraser pieces to create a hole on it. There, you have backs for the earrings.
