Make Your Own Earrings: {Free Craft Projects & Tutorials}

Posted By Tipnut On July 27, 2011 @ 11:50 am In Crafty Ideas | 1 Comment

Last week I published a collection of bracelet [1] and necklace [2] tutorials, here’s the latest addition highlight ideas for making your own jewelry…earrings! You’ll find a dozen free tutorials using a variety of crafting techniques and materials. If you’re looking for wire & bead ideas, see this project collection [3] which has a nice selection of earrings to make. This list is pretty small by Tipnut standards but I expect it to grow over time as I find new goodies. Have fun!
