DIY | Exclusive Bohemian Earrings

Created on

In this blog post you will find inspiration and instructions on how to make your own earrings with various semi-precious stones and pendants. The article wants to inspire especially those of you who already are familiar with the basic techniques, like how to make a loop over a bead.

You can create colourful earrings with several rows of different kinds of gemstone beads and cubic zirkonia or you can keep them more simple and monochrome. We have just received new supplies of small pendants ... faceted coins and cubic zirkonia in gold-plated settings. 

These earrings are a mini version of the larger Bohemian earrings we presented in an earlier blog post. So now you can take out all your tiny beads and pendants and design your own version of these popular earrings.

All our examples are made with gold-plated sterling silver components, but the components are also available in a sterling silver version. Please click on the links below or contact us if you you have questions.

 

Hoops with Floating Aqua Chalcedony Bead

We used the following jewellery components to assemble these earrings:

+ jewellery glue

+ jewellery pliers (round-nose pliers - chain-nose pliers - flat-nose pliers - cutting pliers)

 

The half-drilled aqua chalcedony bead is glued to the peg in the hoop.

The 9 small cubic zirconia (2mm) are fastened to the hoop with gold-plated wire (4.4mm). (Please see our DIY blog post Earrings with gemstone bead links for further instructions.)

The single 4mm cubic zirconia is attached in the same way.

The chain and the clear cubic zirconia with 2 loops are fastened with jumprings (3mm).

This little fresh water pearl is attatched with the help of a headpin with 1.5mm pad. (Please see Smyks' DIY guide This is how you make a loop for further instructions).

Hoops with Cubic Zirkonia Link and Bead

We used the following jewellery components to assemble these earrings:

String the first link of the chain to the hoop. Straighten the hook of the hoop carefully ... slide the locking bead on ... and bend the hook back into its original position. 

Fasten the red cubic zirconia to the chain and the lower eyelet of the green zirconia link with the help of gold-plated wire (0.4mm). (Please see our DIY blog post Earrings with gemstone bead links for further instructions.)

Finally, you string the upper eyelet of the green zirconia link unto the hoop.
