DIY Simple Swarovski Earrings

These are possibly the simplest earrings you can make, once you have mastered the art of making the loop at the top you can make them in seconds!

I used Rebecca's tutorial at My Girlish Whims to learn how to do the loop at the top, it is a great tutorial and there are many more, I highly recommend having a look! There are also loads of tutorials on you tube if you prefer seeing it being done!

Anyway, here is how you make them.

You will need,
any Swarovski* elements that you want to use (I use bicone crystals and pearls for most of the jewellery),


Now you have a new pair of earrings in next to no time! I am slightly addicted to making these, the possibilities are endless!

* I always use genuine Swarovski elements as they are ethically made in Austria. The equivalents from China are almost certainly made in less than ideal situations (given that the minimum wage in certain areas is as low as $0.30 per hour). Unfortunately I have not found a place to get ethical non sterling silver findings so for all the jewellery I make and sell I only use Sterling Silver, made in the UK, findings which increases costs but is better for the conscience!!

Linking to some of these fab linky parties!


  1. Gorgeous earrings, I can see how they can get addictive to make.

    Have a great day, Estelle xx
