Tips, tools & techniques for making earrings:

  • French hooks (earring hooks) are a cinch to use! Simply use flat-nose or chain-nose pliers to open the loop on each ear wire, attach your dangles, and re-close the loop. TIP: Open the loop by twisting the ends away from each other; don't "oval" them. If the loop on the earwire is soldered closed, use a jump ring to attach your focals.
  • Earring posts come in various styles. Posts with a flat pad work great for gluing or soldering your design elements. Posts with a loop are perfect for adding dangles the same way you add them to earring hooks.
  • Earring backs come in a various popular styles and are used to hold posts or hooks in place on the ear. To use, simply slide onto the wire of the finding until it's snug on your ear or display card. Earring backs are sold separately so you can get the exact combination that works best for your jewelry designs.
  • Clip on earring findings include screw-back styles and are perfect for making non-pierced earrings and for converting pierced earrings for non-pierced wearers. Add your focal elements the same way you would add them onto hooks and posts.
  • Hoop earring findings include both ready-to-wear hoops and hoop findings that you can embellish.
  • Ear threads are ideal for sleek, linear earrings, and long chain earring designs. The finished earrings are often called threader earrings.
  • For unique jewelry designs, try earring magnets or ear cuffs (both blanks & ready-to-wear styles)!
  • Download / print our free PDF instructional sheet of Basic Jewelry-Making Techniques or include it free in your next order.

  • What is niobium?    Niobium is a nickel-free inert metal. It is very resistant to  corrosion and other reactions, and is used in medical implants.  Niobium is not plated or painted, so will not flake or chip. It is  anodized, meaning it is colored by dipping it into an electrically  charged "bath." Because it contains no nickel, lead, or other  additives, most people with metal allergies can safely wear  niobium.     Niobium Colors will vary: Colors from different  batches, especially teal, may not exactly match. Teal ear wires and  teal jump rings will look nice together, but are almost guaranteed  to be different shades.

  •                     A quick way to make linear earrings!    Attach dangles, thread beads on, or leave plain.    Use post to penetrate piercing, then pull through.    Available in Sterling Silver and Vermeil.    Select styles available in both original style and "U" threaders.    Lengths may vary.          "Original"       "U" Threaders                 Tips      Beads with 1mm+ hole (including most 6mm and 8mm PRESTIGE Crystal crystal bicones) can be strung directly onto  the thread. Vermeil ear threads are slightly thicker.    Changeable earrings: New earrings every day!  Change the slide-on beads each time you wear them.    For threads without a built-in "U":  To keep beads on thread when on display card or in jewelry box,  carefully add wire keepers (#33-960, #33-961) or better yet, use  SmartBeads with Bead Positioning System (available in sterling  and gold). These look great and are easy to put on ear threads  without breaking the solder joint.    Threads with built-in "U" are great  because the "U" keeps the thread in place in the ear - no need for  a nut in the back. We do not recommend stringing beads onto these  styles, as it could bend or otherwise damage the "U."    To keep beads on thread permanently: Use sterling crimp  bead #41-553 or GF crimp bead #41-653 above beads.

  •                     A quick way to make linear earrings!    Attach dangles, thread beads on, or leave plain.    Use post to penetrate piercing, then pull through.    Available in Sterling Silver and Vermeil.    Select styles available in both original style and "U" threaders.    Lengths may vary.          "Original"       "U" Threaders                 Tips      Beads with 1mm+ hole (including most 6mm and 8mm PRESTIGE Crystal crystal bicones) can be strung directly onto  the thread. Vermeil ear threads are slightly thicker.    Changeable earrings: New earrings every day!  Change the slide-on beads each time you wear them.    For threads without a built-in "U":  To keep beads on thread when on display card or in jewelry box,  carefully add wire keepers (#33-960, #33-961) or better yet, use  SmartBeads with Bead Positioning System (available in sterling  and gold). These look great and are easy to put on ear threads  without breaking the solder joint.    Threads with built-in "U" are great  because the "U" keeps the thread in place in the ear - no need for  a nut in the back. We do not recommend stringing beads onto these  styles, as it could bend or otherwise damage the "U."    To keep beads on thread permanently: Use sterling crimp  bead #41-553 or GF crimp bead #41-653 above beads.

  • What is niobium?    Niobium is a nickel-free inert metal. It is very resistant to  corrosion and other reactions, and is used in medical implants.  Niobium is not plated or painted, so will not flake or chip. It is  anodized, meaning it is colored by dipping it into an electrically  charged "bath." Because it contains no nickel, lead, or other  additives, most people with metal allergies can safely wear  niobium.     Niobium Colors will vary: Colors from different  batches, especially teal, may not exactly match. Teal ear wires and  teal jump rings will look nice together, but are almost guaranteed  to be different shades.
