DIY Bauble Earring to Wire Ring

Found a cute little earring in my hodge podge thrift bag. It didn't have a mate so I did a quick bauble and wire ring DIY. The earring has beautiful colored cabochons and I didn't want to toss it. Over the weekend, I took about 15 minutes and refashioned my earring into a ring! Valentine's Day loving the unloveable week continues.

DIY Bauble & Wire Ring

What you need:
-wire cutter
-wire
-earring

This was really an exploration project so I played it by ear. It was hard to document steps as I just did a lot of bending, twisting, twirling, and looping to achieve the look I wanted.

Generic what to do:
Cut the post off of the earring using wire cutters.
Twist the wire through the loops in the earring and tuck in end piece.
Using finger as a form, twist the wire around a finger to your liking.
Make loops to attach the other side together.

The end.

Yesterday, I attempted a Valentine's Day inspired manicure during Violet's nap. I believe I tried this before but it came out really bad so I painted over the whole thing. This time it wasn't as bad. Can you see the hearts? Squint and then tilt your head and they should become visible. See 'em?

I'm wearing a dress from friend's closet. Same friend with the Anthropologie sweater. It's a comfy vintage house dress but I think I will wear it outside when summer arrives. Can't wait!

Violet's judging side eye. Pretty sure she thinks I'm weird. She wanted the ring too. She wore it the rest of the day. I took it back when it was bath time and will hide it from her later. I win.

Makes me want to see if I can find an earring without a match lying around to turn into a ring! I have to hide my jewelry from Moo too. Loving the nails and the colors!

Great idea, love the stones in the earring and way to give it new life. My daughter gives me that look everyday I love it was caught in camera. When my daughter was her age I had to keep my jewelry box up high or she would be in my stuff constantly .

Xoxo,
Carrie
