Now I know that this how-to has nothing to do with interior design or home decor, but it was a fun little project I did this week that I simply had to share with you all.
Several months after our wedding, I lost one of the earrings that I wore for the ceremony. I was so bummed; they were my favorite pair that I owned at the time, and I was so disappointed that I wouldn’t be able to wear it any more. I held onto the leftover earring because I couldn’t bear to part with it, and I had hopes that I would be able to find a way to use it, or perhaps even find another identical one (or, miracle of miracles, find the lost earring).
Then, a few months ago, I had the idea to turn it into a pendant. I was so excited about the idea, but didn’t get around to doing it til this week, and I am so pleased with how it turned out.
Here is what you’ll need for this project:
- One earring (you may be able to use a post earring for this project, but I used a dangle earring)
- Needle nose pliers
- Wire cutter
- Necklace chain
The whole process is really quite simple; all you need to do is to twist the earring post around the joint portion.
Once you’ve finished wrapping it around and creating a loop, cut off the remaining wire with the write cutters.
Then, string the chain through the loop, and put it on!
I’m so happy to be able to wear my earring again!
