i have been experimenting with burning records lately so that inspired me to turn these circles into fashinable earrings. it's really simple so i thought i'd share.


first gather materials.
Clockwise starting with the circles:
anything you want to convert into earrings that is plastic-y or meltable
lighters
round nose pliers
2 jumper rings
2 earring hooks
pins
pencil
oh, and flat nose pliers too


take the pencil and on the back side of your object, draw a dot where you will insert the pin to make the hole.


then, take the lighterand burn the tip until the end is red. i recommend the pins with the little balls on the end so the heat wont be transmitted and you dont' burn your hands!!!


once it's burned, poke it through the earring


now take the jumper ring and open it up


and insert it in the hole


now, you need to rotate the little circle on the earring hook


take your flat nose pliers and hold the circle tightly


now rotate the hook 90 degrees towards you


now you can insert the hook in the jumper ring.


close, and tADA!!!!!!

ease peasy, and totally hot!!!


questions/comments welcome!~

thanks so much for taking the time for a tute, those look smashing. Especially without great big 80's hair and nasty makeup.... Tongue

Ooo! I made a set in black and white similar to this for a Black and White Ball! I hung pairs of those (a thin white one on top of a large black one) on earrings on from a black ribbon.

Great tut, very specific! And very cute earrings.

they're just plain ol' plastic circles. my sister bought them at a swap meet with the purpose of turning them into earrings. we never actually got around to it until now. we've seriously had them for over a year just lyin' around . . .
