Craft Tutorial: Glass Stone Earrings

Have you started preparing for Christmas gifts? I actually have (surprise!) but they were, sadly, all still in my head (not so surprise now, right?), and I was getting jittery with the prospect of panic gift shopping/making/wrapping. Yes, you know the choky feeling! So, today I’m going to crack on with making some easy earrings that your girlfriends (and yourself) would love. Ready for the tutorial?

What you’ll need:

Craft Tutorial: Glass Stone Earrings tool
  • nail polish, any colour you like
  • small rhinestones (I’m using rhinestones for nail art)
  • 2 sew-on glass stones
  • pair of ear posts with flat discs
  • (not in the photo) jewellery glue and toothpick

Instructions:

1) Apply nail polish on the glass stones. You can skip this step if you prefer the glass’s original colour. Set aside to dry.

2) With a toothpick, apply small amount of glue on the stone, then place rhinestones.

3) Again, apply glue on the ear posts, and attach them at the back of the stones. Set aside to dry (my glue took 24 hours to completely set), and you’re done!

Told you it was going to be easy! I love the earrings because they are so easy to mass-produce (horrible as it may sound!) and possibilities are endless if you change the colours and rhinestone design.

The pale green pair is made with vintage glass stones (Etsy is full of wonderful vintage beads suppliers you won’t come out empty handed!), and I used metal flower parts I got from a nail art shop in Japan. It was quite fun to look around in my craft stash to see what I could attach on the stones :) Anyways, hope you enjoyed the tutorial!
