quick feather earrings tutorial, perfect for summer!

quick feather earrings tutorial


I made these (and two other pairs) in about 45 minutes minutes while watching Doctor Who last weekend. They are so fun and cute, I will be wearing these all the time this summer! Although I do love neutral clothes, I also love big, bold, colorful accessories! These will add a little polish to my jean-shorts-and-tank-top summer uniform.

The best part? They are amazingly simple to make! They only require a few jewelry findings and a couple of clamped feathers (I got mine in this craft supply haul).

You will need:


2 eye pins
2 earring hooks
2 pre-clamped feathers
2 turquoise beads
needle nose pliers
wire cutters

*this picture also shows two jump rings, ignore them! I didn't need them after all.

Put your turquoise bead on your headpin, then create another loop on the other side by cutting the straight side of your headpin off leaving about 1/3 of an inch, then wrapping the wire around your needle nose pliers make a second loop:

Open the loop on one side, and insert the top of the feather. Close it up again, tight!

This is what it should look like once it's closed back up:
