- A pair of matching bottle caps
- Beads (optional)
- Europunch tool
- Round-nose pliers (for making loops if you're adding beads)
- Needle-nose pliers (for wiring the beads if you're adding any)
- Cutters (for cutting wire if you're adding beads)
- Jump rings
Let's start with the bottle caps. Find two matching ones (and if you have to down another bottle to do so, well, so be it!) You'll need a Europunch tool for this part -- don't worry, we have plenty at the store! It's what you use to punch holes through the bottle cap.
Line up your punch tool in the side of the cap, so that the logo will be right side up. Then, simply squeeze the handle together and punch right through that cap!
I decided to add beads, to give my earrings a slightly more finished look. I used some red Chinese crystal rondelles for the top, and little red stars to dangle below -- seemed perfect for these "Lone Star" earrings! Then stick some earwires on and you're good to go!
There's no limit to these neat little accessories -- make some for your friends!
Happy beading, and Happy New Year!
