DIY Applique Earrings

Today on the blog we have a special treat for you. Recently Trish posted some gorgeous earrings she made with our appliqués in our Facebook group. I fell in love with them and begged her to write a tutorial for us. So, without further ado, I give you Trish's earring tutorial!

Hello Surge friends! I’m super happy to be here sharing how to make gorgeous earrings from the appliqués I found in Surge’s shop. I saw these pretty little appliqués in the Surge shop, had no idea what to do with them, but knew I needed them. I pinned them to my inspiration board where they sat for a while until one day I looked at them and said they needed to be earrings! This is such an easy project, you can totally do it even if you aren’t a jewelry maker! I’m not, I stick to sewing, but this has me interested in learning something new! I love that they make a statement but aren’t heavy to wear. The pastel colors in the shop right now would be perfect for the upcoming Spring and Summer.

You will need a few simple things to make these earrings: Appliqués from Surge, Small chain nose jewelry pliers or just small pliers, and earring hooks.  


Use your pliers to open the loop at the end of the earring hook.  
 
Put the loop from the earring hook through the applique from front to back.
 
Use the pliers to close the loop of the earring hook.  
 
Repeat with the other applique and you have a gorgeous pair of earrings!  

While you’re there on the Surge website getting appliques, you might as well grab a few styles because once you make 1 pair, you’ll want more and so will your friends!

A little bit about me:

I am a mom of 3 (including twins! SOS) My family and I are Mid westerners in Indiana near Chicago. Sewing is my job - I make women's and children's clothing and accessories mostly for vendor fairs and markets, but also do some custom work. I also love to play with makeup, though I don't wear it everyday. I've recently started a sewing school and doing sewing workshops which have been so fun and I am excited to see where it goes!
