Making Silver and Gold Earrings

Make a pair of silver and gold earrings using materials from The Maker’s Movement. #sponsored @jointhemakersmovement

with The Makers Movement

I really enjoy making earrings. Some of the easiest earrings to make use a die to cut the shape. The silver and gold earrings above are made using a die and other materials from The Maker’s Movement. I like the combination of silver and gold especially when you can’t decide which color of metal works with your outfit the best. Or if you are going to wear different metals for other jewelry pieces, these earrings can pull it all together.

A special thanks to The Maker’s Movement for providing materials to use in this post.

earring parts

Making Mod Earrings

Diy your own mod earrings with Grafix shrink film.

If you haven’t figured it out by now, I enjoy making jewelry. Grafix Arts sent me a variety of different plastic products to work with. These mod earrings are using silver shrink film.

I remember working with shrink plastic as a child and my excitement is still the same today. Watching the plastic shrink always thrills me and I am happy with the smaller results!


  • StazOn black in pad
  • stamp
  • stamp block
  • hole punch
  • Silver Shrink Film
  • toaster oven
  • jewelry making findings
  • scissors
  • corner rounder
  • UV resin
  • UV lamp


I stamped the image onto the silver film with StazOn ink twice.

I had a few areas that didn’t stamp solidly. Using a cotton swab and the ink pad, I filled in those areas – it worked great!

I used a corner rounder punch on the cut out pieces so there wouldn’t be any sharp edges when wearing the earrings.

I then centered a hole punch at the top of each image.

The plastic is now ready to bake. I have a dedicated toaster oven for crafting. I placed them on parchment paper, cover them with another piece of parchment paper, and followed the package directions for baking.

The two shrunk pieces are covered with UV resin to add thickness and longevity to the earrings. Then I used a variety of materials to finish off the earrings: silver wire, jump rings, black beads, ear wires, and jewelry-making tools.

I found the resin actually started the ink to bleed so if I were to do it again, I would spray fix the stamped image before using the UV resin.

How To Make Faux Leather Earrings

How to make faux leather earrings with a Cricut. Includes a free SVG file. How to Make Jewelry Using a Cricut Machine.

Making earrings with your personal die cutting machine is a current hot topic in crafting. I’ve done it before [see post here], but these leaf-like earrings are my newest design. This version of earrings was made using The Best Glue Ever by ScraPerfect. It really made making them and attaching the layers together easy. The tacky glue dries quickly but leaves enough time to maneuver the position of the layers. 


I want to personally thank Cricut and ScraPerfect for providing materials for this post. I am a design team member with Cricut and ScraPerfect.

Once glued and in place, I used a tile to weight
the layered faux leather down.
Let dry overnight.

I used a T-pin to poke a hole in the faux leather and
attached a jump ring and earring wire.

Learn to Make Easy Fashion Earrings

Learn how to make these easy fashion earrings using the new Mini Maker from Maker’s Movement. I love their earring dies, making jewelry is so easy using them. There are a variety of different sizes but today I am using the teardrop die that comes with the Mini Maker. In fact, all materials except my pliers and paint pen came from Maker’s Movement.

This is the new die cutting machine, the Mini Maker. It is a perfect size to sit on your desktop.

Before we start on the earrings, I want to walk you through the new Mini Maker.

And now for the video tutorial making the fashion earrings: (includes a special appearance by Happy the kitten – who doesn’t want to leave!)

I gave this pair of earrings to my daughter to go with a red dress she just bought. So, now I need to make myself a pair. Thankfully it takes little time and is very easy to do!
