Tutorial: Beaded Safety Pin Earrings

Earrings can be made from all manner of objects, so long as they’re not too heavy on the ears!
These safety pin earrings are possibly the easiest - and quickest - to make.
They are also cheap, chic, and that little bit different!

Here’s how to make your own.

Time needed: 5 minutes

You’ll need:
2 Large safety pins
2 Earring wires
Flat-nose pliers
Round-nose pliers

* Make sure your beads will fit onto the safety pins! 

1. Thread beads onto the pin.

2. Close the pin and squeeze the opening with flat-nose pliers so the pin cannot come undone.

3. Open the loop at the bottom of an earring wire using round-nose pliers. 

4. Thread onto the bottom of the pin and close.

5. Voila!

  • How about a series of tiny beads?
  • Or make use of bead caps and spacer beads
  • Use different sized safety pins
