Jewelry: Needle Earrings

needle earrings (1)

Some days, a girl feels more clever than others.  Take the day that I was trying to think of something simple and inexpensive to make for each of the members of my sewing circle.  At the time, I was weaving in some ends on my crochet work.  I looked down at the yarn needle in my hand and BOOM… light bulb moment!

That was followed by a bout of Why Didn’t I Think Of This Sooner, which itself was followed by a trip to the craft store.

To make an awesome pair of Needle Earrings, you’ll need just a few things:

  • Jewelry Pliers (2 pair, if you’ve got them)
  • A package (or two!) of blunt tip yarn needles (metal or plastic will work)
  • 4 jump rings in the size of your choice per pair of earrings
  • French Hooks or similar

You can find these blunt-tip yarn needles in the needlework with the crochet hooks and knitting needles.

All the supplies to make a slew of needle earrings!

For one earring attach needle > jump ring> jump ring > earring.  Two jump rings makes them hang nicer so that eye is turned out when you wear them.

Here’s a great photo tutorial on opening and closing jump rings.

Wash, rinse, repeat.  Wear and share!
