DIY gift: hinge earrings

i get lots of inspiration from hardware elements - as you may be able to tell from my Screw You jewelry pieces - so when i happened upon these very lightweight and beautifully shaped hinges at the hardware store, i knew they had to be earrings! i love these as a DIY gift for the holidays!

Prep It:
  • pliers
  • wire cutters
  • open brass jump rings - 2 large and 2 small
  • brass or gold plated earring wires
  • hinges from hardware store - i chose a set of very lightweight brass hinges
  • E6000 glue
DO IT!:
  • apply the E6000 glue to the hinges so they don't bend - use a toothpick for accurate application.
  • attach the large jumpring with your pliers to the hole on one end of the hinge
  • attach the smaller jump ring to the large jump ring and to the ear wire and done!
