DIY Woven Earrings on our Round Weaver Looms! March 19, 2018 19:15

Did you know? You can make earrings from our Round Weavers! Here we have some finished Round Weavers using Sue Spargo threads and Trebizond silk.



Here's how to make your own pair of DIY woven earrings:

For hardware, we used 4 jump rings 8mm wide and 2 lever back closures.  We like lever backs because it feels most secure to us.  Plus, the fish hook closures tend to tickle.



Using jewelry pliers, open up the 4 jump rings just wide enough to fit around one of the warp holes on the 1” Round Weaver.  We found there was room for the warp thread and the jump ring on the 1” Round Weavers.



Place a jump ring around a hole on the Round Weaver and close the jump ring with your jewelry pliers.  


Then place the second jump ring around the first jump ring and add the lever back closure.

To do something similar with the larger round weavers, you need to have a larger first jump ring.  You may even need to drill a hole to accommodate a jump ring above the woven work.  In cases where you do not have a larger jump ring or access to a drill, we suggest getting creative with flexible wire.



We will be launching jewelry making Round Weaver kits in the late spring so be sure to sign up for our newsletter to know when they will be available!
