DIY Heart Stud Earrings

With Valentine’s Day coming up I thought I’d share how to make these cute heart stud earrings. They are super simple and you will only need three materials.

DIY Heart Stud Earrings


Here’s the materials you need to make these earrings:


The tool set I’m using in the video is the 6 Piece Chroma Plier Set.  It’s so very cool.  If you would like to know more, you can see it here.


Watch the video or read the instructions below.   

Cut the Wire

Cut a piece of wire about 7cm (2/5”) long. Use the nylon jawed pliers to straighten it if necessary.

Cut Wire to Size

Make a Loop

Make sure you have a flush cut, then make a small loop in the end of the wire. If you haven’t made loops before, please watch this video for extra tips

Make a Loop

Shape First Side of the Heart

Hold the loop you just made between the jaws of your bail making pliers using the smallest size. Wrap the wire around the plier so that it’s facing down.  Pull it slightly over so that it forms the first half of the heart.

Twist the Loop

Using the flat nosed pliers, twist the loop so that it’s sitting flat with the wire.

Twist the wire

Thread on the Beads

Thread on eight of the seed beads.

Add the Beads

Shape the Second Side of the Heart

Using your chain nose or flat nose pliers, make a bend right at the bottom of the beads. Manipulate the wire until it looks like the bottom of the heart.

Make a Bend

Use the bail making pliers as before to shape the top curve of the heart. Where the wire meets the first loop, make a bend so that end of the wire is pointing away from the loop. 

Shape the Second Half of the Heart

Trim the Wire

Make a right angle bend in the wire where it intersects with the loop.

Bend the Wire

Cut the wire to approximately 1cm (0.39”).  If the loop is sitting in front of the wire end, push it back so that the loop is behind the end. Pull back gently until you can push the end of the wire through the heart.

Manipulate the wire until it looks how you want it to look.

File the End

The last thing you need to do is file the end of the wire so that it doesn’t scratch the inside of your ear.

Then, of course, repeat the entire process to make another earring.
