DIY: ear cuff


You will need 18 gauge wire, chains, head pins, round pliers or cutters, and beads, pendants, or gems. First, cut a 20 cm piece of the 18 gauge metal wire. Use the round nose pliers to make a loop at one end of the wire. Cut the chain into 6 pieces each 6 cm long. Take one of the chains and string it onto the loop, then use the pliers to close the loop. Use your hands to shape the wire to the shape of your ear. Slide a chain onto the wire and keep it in place with a loop. Continue adding chains to the wire and securing them with loops. Take a pendant/bead/gem and thread it onto a head pin. Thread the pin through the last link in the first chain and create a loop. Cut off the excess. Repeat this for all of the chains and you're done.
