Have you noticed that stud earrings are gaining popularity? Have you also noticed that metallic studs are everywhere…trimming purses, shirt collars and cuffs. Well, these two observations meet to make the easiest jewelry ever. You can honestly whip up a pair of these stud earrings in 5 minutes! All you need is:
- Metal studs, flat back is best
- Glue, I highly recommend E6000
- Earring posts and backs
ONE: use a toothpick to spread a tiny amount of glue onto the pad of the earring post. TWO: press the glued post to the back of the metal stud and hold for a few seconds. THREE: let dry, overnight is best. FOUR: make more for all your girlfriends!!
Check your local craft or leather supply shop for the glue, earring bits and studs. Or order the studs from etsy like I did. Special note: this is the most kind and accommodating etsy seller I’ve dealt with. She mixed gold, silver and bronze metals to make a custom order for me and shipped it fast. The flat back type are the easiest to use – they’re actually filled with glue and made to be ironed onto fabrics. I used the 8mm ones.
Trendy, adorable and just a bit edgy…I’m loving these. Go make some!
