Materials List

  • vintage glass cabochons
  • metal cabochon settings
  • bali gold vermeil earhooks
  • button-shaped freshwater pearls
  • gold-plated eye hooks


  1. Set your cabochons of choice into the metal settings.

  2. Put one pearl onto an eye pin. Cut off excess pin, leaving 8-10mm for making a loop. Turn the cut end of the eye pin into a loop to make a bead connector with your pearl. Repeat with the remaining pearl.

  3. Open one loop on a bead connector, attach the alphabet dangle to it, and close the loop again. Repeat with the other side.

  4. Open the loop at the bottom of an earhook and attach the hook to the freshwater pearl. Repeat for the other earring and voila, you're done! You now have an elegantly simple pair of earrings commemorating your favourite person/people and great for fancying up a casual outfit or complementing a more dressy outfit.
