Make Your Own Earrings Tutorial

Cloud Nine JewelryI've got a treat today--you've seen stamped silver necklaces before, right? They're very vogue and Cloud Nine Jewelry has the prettiest version I've seen so far which include hand-carved and cast charms.

Cloud Nine was begun by the talents behind jaC Jewelry and Alison Kelley Design and they've put together a short and simple tutorial just for Scribbit readers on how to make a pair of beaded wire-wrap earrings that I know you'll love. It's a fun project for Mother's Day and if you have a preteen or teen daughter in the house it would be a fun craft to try together.

For pictures and instructions on the hand-casting process you can read Janna's tutorial and be inspired.

Thanks Cloud Nine Jewelry!
