Petal Earring Tutorial (+ another kit!)

My new favorite earrings:


I love them in white with lace the best,
but they're also fun in bright colors!

They were inspired by these two pair from Anthropologie:
They were so easy to make! Even the newest beginners at jewelry making can do it!


1: You'll need 4" of your favorite ribbon for each earring, burned or treated with fray check on the ends. Take a needle and thread, and do a running stitch along the edge of the ribbon....

2: Push your ribbon down the thread to gather, and stitch once in the back to secure, and set it aside.

3: Then thread 8 4mm pearls onto silver headpins, and clip with wire cutters with a little less than 1/2" left on.

4: With needle nose pliers, bend the pin into a circle. Twist the end up slightly to open the loop.

5: Attach the loop to a jumpring. Repeat for all 8 pearls, connecting them all to the same jumpring.

6: Bring the needle from the back of the ribbon flower, through to the front and thread it through the jumpring, then back through to the back of the flower. Pull firmly 'till you see the jumpring through the hole in the back, and stitch a few more times to secure. Knott twice.

7: Use a strong glue to attach the flower to an earring post, and let dry.

Enjoy!!




I don't know what it is, but I ADORE them!!

But what's that you say??
You don't want to go out and buy all that stuff? Well lucky for you, I twisted my sister's arm, and she's made another jewelry kit for us!! Yay!!

  • You can get all the supplies you need to make 2 Pair of these earrings, including lace, and your color choice of ribbon with pre-burned edges
or
  • If you already have ribbon that you want to use, and you just want all the jewelry making supplies, she also sells a separate kit for that!
to go to her shop!

I hope you're able to make some, they're tons of fun :o) I'm kind of addicted.

Also, if you're interested in jewelry making, my sister has a blog where she does tutorials now and then! I love that. Most jewelry sellers don't want to show you how to make it yourself, so they won't lose money, but she does! How nice! :o)

Talk to you soon! I'll post a few more entries for the "Ruffle Your Stuff" contest soon!
God bless you guys!

  9. Disney! Great minds think alike! I was inspired by those exact earrings at Anthro and did something similar, but just used existing earrings so you can switch them out with whatever earrings you have on hand.

  31. Nice post – and the earrings are quite whimsical in design. You can do this not just from scratch, but add these embellishments to an old or simple pair of earrings and revive the look. Also, it would be a nice activity to share with someone who has passed on their jewellery to the next wearer!
