    Anyone have a pattern for easy to make earrings for teen gir

    hey!

    Does anyone have a pattern for easy to make earrings for teen girls. They should be able to make these earrings on their own without much knowledge of jewellery making or design.

    Please advise. Any info will help!

    Cheers!

    find some trendy little charms (or have them make their own with shrinky dinks), jump rings, earring wires, and a pair of pliers... just a quick instruction on how to open and close the jump ring and they're good to go.

    Candy Earrings

    Try this. Buy the basic jewelry making tools: hook earrings, the little pins, pliers. Stick the pins through colorful candy: gumdrops, candy corn, skittles, etc. Then coat the candy with clear nail polish. Cute and quirky.

    Betty-Cut idea!! But....by little pins do you mean like a saftey pin or a needle and how do you attatch it to the earring?

    The pins I mean are sold in the jewelry section of a craft store. THey look like flat head pins but do not have a needle point. Stick them through the candy, then use wire cutters (needle nose pliers have wire cutters on thm) to cut the pin so there is about a half an inch at the top. bend that half inch into a circle which you then loop through the circle at the base of the earring hook. Do you understand what I mean? If you need a visual, any basic jewelry making book should explain this technique.
