Golden Cowrie Earrings

Project details:

in favorites

African beads add the perfect pattern and organic shape to these earrings. Cowrie shells create a summer vibe.

Supplies you’ll need:

You will need 2 African zig zag barrels, 2 bottle green 12mm mini donuts, a pair of ear wire, and 22/24 gauge wire. I listed gold and silver options below.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1

Cut about 2" of wire and feed it through the top of the cowrie shell, then twist the wire tight twice.

Step 2

Feed both ends of the wire up through the beads. Create a loop at the top of your beads and wrap the excess wire around and trim. Now you can attach to your ear wire.
