Shell Earrings

I've been on the road most of this week for work so it's time to pull out the jewellery making supplies for a quickie craft!

Aren't the painted shells gorgeous?  I completely forgot that I ordered them, so was very happily surprised when they fell out of my latest Wholeport package.

Here's what you need to throw together your own perfect summer earrings.

-2 shepherd hooks
-4 medium size jump rings
-2 medium/long eye pins
-2 large round cabochon shells
-4 natural beads (I think mine are coconut)

1) Slide 2 small natural beads onto your eye pin.  Then cut it down and make another eye on the other end.

2) Using a jump ring, attach one end of your eye pin to the shell piece.

3) Attach another jump ring onto the other end and through the end of the shepherd hook finding.

That's it!  Couldn't be easier.  Just make another one and you've got a pair.  Watch the direction of your jump rings to make sure the shells don't swing the wrong way, but other than that...easy peasy!

I tend to go a little boho chic in the summer so my jewellery changes as well and gets much more casual.  How about you?  Do the change in seasons signal a change in style for you?  Leave a comment below~
