Aren’t these earrings gorgeous? I love them so, so much! And guess what? They took probably 2 minutes total!!!

I love jewelry where the wire is in all sorts of fancy loops and patterns but I don’t know how to do that (yet). When a couple of these Christmas ornament hangers (I know, right?) wound up on my desk they suddenly struck me as the perfect little silver accessories with a few very minor changes.

Take your ornament hanger and string on a couple of beads. I used fancy little silver beads, three on each.

Use jewelry pliers to curve the top swirl in to shut completely.

Use a jump ring and earring findings to finish up the job!

Happy Monday. Max & I hope you enjoy your cute but simple new dangle earrings!

      Hi, Sam – These hooks for sale at Dollar Tree and Hobby Lobby. I have also heard that JoAnn Fabrics carries them but I don’t know that for a fact. Good luck!
