DIY Double Pearl Earrings

Last week, I rounded up a few pairs of double earrings earrings that update the classic pearl stud with a hanging back. Here's my DIY version! The earring is basically a sandwich of the pearl, your ear lobe, the hanging pearl, and finally the earring back. You could change up this tutorial by connecting the loop on the hanging pearl to the earring back, for a bit more dangle, but I prefer how this way the back keeps the hanging pearl a bit more snug to your ear for these delicate DIY double pearl earrings.

You can interchange the hanging pearl with stud earrings you already have or make. I can't wait to pair the pearls with my favorite gold pyramid studs (similar style here). Also, last week Veva from My White Idea (remember her DIY Around the World post?) shared a double pearl earring tutorial too! I love how she cleverly put hers together for a bold style.

Inspiration: Modern Pearls

I've said it once, and I'll say it again: I love all the new styles of earrings that are available now. While massive ear cuffs or jackets aren't exactly my day-to-day style, I'm a big fan of how earrings are being reinterpreted, with the back as exciting as the front. For everyday wear, I look to these modern versions of pearl earrings for inspiration. They're simple enough for work or casual wear, but still have a playful, untraditional touch. I've got a DIY earring project coming for you very soon, inspired by these pearly pairs!

PS-- Interested in any of these earrings? Shopbop (use code family25) and BaubleBar (code friends25) are running their friend and family sales, so there are deals to be had!
