Crochet Earring Inspiration

One day not too long ago, a friend at work asked me to make a pair of earrings to match an outfit she was wearing. I made a few of these small circles in different colors. She loved them.

My daughter and I decided to make more. I do the crocheting and she adds the beads, earring wires, and jump rings.

They are super easy, quick, and fun to make.

Learn How to Make Dangle Earrings

Pairing multiple circles together is an extremely easy way to make dangle earrings. Additionally, you can use one circle and add strung beads or other dangling and pretty elements to create the long, beautiful look.

Design Your own Earrings

Try pairing various thread colors together and start to make different shapes and sizes. The addition of beads can completely change the look of a crochet earring shape. Stack a smaller circle on top of a larger circle.

String a few crochet circles together with beads between. You can find our granny square earrings pattern where we turned the square on edge and added a bead. We had a small square on top of a larger square and added a bead to the bottom of a square.

I kept making various colors of circles and squares in different sizes and my daughter kept transforming the mini crochet items into jewelry.

This is truly one-of-a-kind jewelry making on a budget too!

Tools Needed to Make Jewelry

Permanent Flexible Fabric Glue (Optional). This is not required. However, if you have a thread that you feel is not quite secure, add a dab of this and it will dry clear so you don’t have to worry.  If you prefer to have a stiff crochet earring, you can add a very light coating of this glue to the back side of the earring. Wipe off any excess and let dry. If you are not able to find this locally, you can find it here.

Jewelry Pliers. Making jewelry items requires you to be able to work with tiny items. The pliers are pointed at the end, which helps with making the jewelry. If you are looking to start making jewelry, this is a nice jewelry pliers set.

Jump Rings. If you plan on stringing more than one crochet earring together or adding beads, these jump rings are used to attach things. They are tiny metal circles that open up with a pliers to allow you to add your decorations. Then just pinch it closed again to secure. This is so much better than having to tie on items and we think using the jump rings helps the jewelry items hang better too. Here is a jump ring set.

Earring Wires. There are a variety of styles to choose from when looking for earring wires. We prefer to get the wires that have the bottom loop that can be opened and closed. This makes it easy to attach the wire to the crochet thread. There are no extra threads needed to attach the earrings or special knots to deal with. These earring wires can be added to the crochet circle without having to sew on.

How to Add the Earring Wire

If you get an earring wire that has a circle loop on the bottom that can be opened, those are the easiest to use with crocheted earrings. Just use your jewelry pliers and gently open the bottom loop just enough to get the crochet thread through. Then close the bottom loop and your earrings are done.

If you are not lucky enough to have a bottom loop that can be opened on the earring wire, then you can use the crochet thread attach the earring wire. Just make sure that you use a secure locking knot before removing the excess thread.
