Weekend DIY: Making Spring Earrings + Tips And Hacks To Selling Anywhere

What a wonderful weekend I've had this weekend. Yes, I got a little extra rest, but I also squeezed in a bit of time to make some Spring DIY earrings.
Since I needed to wear pink today, I decided to make myself a pair of mix-matched earrings.
But I couldn't make one set I ended up making two pair, and only one was my favorite.

For the most part, I love spring, but I am not ready for all the flowers and pastel colors. I seriously tried to incorporate those textures and prints into my accessories. No matter how I tried, I felt it wasn't for me at all.
But that doesn't take away the fact that most people love to wear all the colors of Spring, even those at my job. All this month, my coworkers and I will be wearing something that pertains to having Spring vibes. Although it is not required to participate, I thought it would be unfriendly not to, so I've decided to make something for my ears. The reason being so I can still wear my black attire, and I think pink accessories look better on me than wearing a full out of colors.

Let me know below if you plan to wear any flowers or bright colors this season?

So, let's jump right on into the making of my choices in my earring selection. You guys know I am into making quick and simple things that anyone can make in 10 minutes or less. So, this post is no exception to that rule.

I love going into the craft store and finding things that are easy to put together. The best part is no one will have the same thing when I make it myself.

So, it was a no brainer for me when I saw the blank slate tiny key rings. I knew I had to grab them for two reasons.
#1: It was going to be easy to remove the snap locks off the ends
#2: I know that the eclectic style and the two different pieces will be a conversation piece at work

So I grabbed a pair and removed the ends on both pieces. Then I opened the jump ring and placed one earring hook at the end. 

I do not think it can get any simpler than that, and I think I may love them after all.

 I was only going to make myself one thing, but I can never do that. I saw before leaving the store that iron orchid had a few cute earrings already hanging. Just in case you guys didn't know the craft store sell, don't just sell things to make just for DIYs. 

You can now find an array of items that have already complete for purchase. Every time I go into a craft store, I find cute necklaces and unique earrings. 

I love it when I can do a remake or restyle on something that is already complete, and that is what I did to this small pair of earrings.
I keep a lot of loose beads and charms in a stash in my closet. Because I never know when I am going to need them. This weekend proved me right; I was able to grab a few a place onto a pair of iron orchid silver flat earrings.

It is effortless when it comes to adding pieces to a piece of jewelry that I want to add a little spice too.

 First, I laid out all the pieces I wanted to use on my project. I tried the beads first, but I think I needed to use smaller beads because the medium beads were a bit too heavy.

So, I opted to add only one charm, and it turned out to be the cutest little thing I ever put together.

Although it was not a big deal, by adding a small trinket to my earrings, it then changed the way it looked. Yes, it took the style from basic to where did you get those earrings. I am always happy to tell them I made them.

Besides, I do not think it can get any easier than that at all. Moreover, this technique can be done on any style of hoop earrings.
So, the next time you are in your nearest craft store, go ahead and pick up a few beads, and whatnots that can make something unique and creative.

Last but not least, this DIY may seem a bit simple and a little corny. But I've attended crafting events and have seen these type styles selling for no less than 20 dollars. It's not about how small something is or how many trinkets are on the item. It is more about time and packaging that plays a big part into someone charging a modest fee,
Honestly, small earrings to me sell faster and quicker than a large piece of jewelry.
