How to Make Your Own Post Earrings With Glue

Look around your house or the house of a friend or relative, and you are bound to find many old buttons, shells, rocks, toys and game pieces that can make intriguing fashion earrings. Make or purchase post earring findings, add some glue and you can transform found objects to create nostalgic, hand assembled post earrings.

Skill level:Easy

Things you need

Two matching itemsPost earring findingsGlue or epoxy

Instructions

1 Select two items that you want to turn into post earrings. You can use shells, fused glass, old buttons, pieces from a game or toy or any other items that you want to incorporate and then wear as earrings. Usually earrings are identical, but asymmetrical earrings using different, but themed items make an interesting design alternative.

2 Glue multiple parts (if any) together before attaching them to the earring posts. For example, if there are two or more parts to a toy or game piece, glue those parts together before attaching the piece to the earring post.

3 Glue the items to your handmade or commercial post earring findings according to the manufacturer's instructions. For epoxy and some glue you may need to mix two parts. Measure the parts carefully before mixing. Do not touch the earrings until the glue has cured. Allow the glue or epoxy resin to set overnight or according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Tips and warnings

Work in a well-ventilated space when using glue or epoxy.

Be aware that certain glues can cause skin irritation or worse. Wear gloves when working with glue or epoxy.
