I love shiny things, they make my heart beat a little faster and I get mesmerized:) I knew right away these would make cool earrings.
You can make these with just 5-6 inches of 20 ga wire, I used silver, but copper ,brass, or bronze would be great. Oh and any reflective sunglass lens, do NOT tear up a good pair to make these. Ask around if you don't have a pair, someone will have an old pair to give you.
I used my torch to heat a large safety pin, then pierced the plastic lens, I inserted the wire, made a swirl to cover the hole, push the wire through to the back, then I made a wrapped loop. Attach a jump ring to hang it on your ear wire (I make all my own) you can use a purchased one if you like.
5 minute earrings nearly free! You can decorate them anyway you can think of, have fun making your own sunglass earrings:)
These are light, swing-y and fun fun fun! I hope you will try these and come back to tell me how yours turned out. Thanks for reading my blog, till next time!
