Earrings are easy to make and whether you are a first-time crafter or love DIY, these are both stunning and original designs using different elements to make your own fabulous earrings. Make two pairs of designer earrings and follow Christine in a pre-recorded step by step online tutorial.

With your craft box, you can make two pairs of earrings in your choice of colours:

  • 'Medina' filigree chandeliers
  • 'Leaf' drop crystal earrings

The 'Medina' earrings are made from a delicately ornate brass element and paired with Czech glass triangle beads. This design is the perfect expression for your boho style, which will transport you back to a 1970s cocktail hour in Marrakesh. Exaggerated forms and gilded metallics make this vintage modern chandelier earring design an elegant statement, plus they are so lightweight and therefore incredibly comfortable to wear. 'Leaf' earrings are made from a feature brass leaf, linked to Swarovski crystals and a Czech glass bead.

Both designs are sustainable with brass being the most eco of all metals as it has a small footprint. If you're looking for fun things to do at home, reach out for one of our jewellery making DIY kits which are just like making from scratch, only easier! Plus this earring kit comes with a step by step video tutorial in these times of physical distancing.
