DIY Ear cuffs

In the last few years we saw ear cuffs getting more popular. They offer the chance to decorate the whole ear. This shape requires new solutions to fasten the earring to the ear. It can be anchored behind the ear or with additional ear-piercings. Sometimes we can use a vintage solution to wear a contemporary trend. I used earring clips to transform these earrings into ear cuffs. They were popular in  custom jewelry of the 80s. Even those who don't have a pierced lobe can wear earrings with clips and this feature can be used to fasten the earring to any part of the ear. You can transform your earrings into ear cuffs in 1 minute and I found 3 ways to wear them.

Negli ultimi anni abbiamo visto diffondersi la moda degli ear cuff, orecchini che salgono lungo il lobo e decorano tutto l'orecchio. La forma innovativa dell'ornamento richiede soluzioni nuove per fissarlo, altri fori o una sagoma da agganciare dietro l'orecchio. A volte però sfruttando delle soluzioni conosciute possiamo inventare nuovi modi di indossare degli orecchini che abbiamo già. Ho usato delle clip per traformare questi orecchini in ear cuffs . Anche chi non ha i lobi forati può indossare gli orecchini con le clip e questa caratteristica può essere utilizzata anche per agganciare gli orecchini in punti diversi dell'orecchio.
Colla, due clip e gli orecchini si trasformano in ear cuff in un minuto non di più!

You'll need:
  • earrings
  • earrings clips
  • glue
  • pliers
  • orecchini
  • clip
  • colla
  • pinze

I took off the earring nail with pliers

Ho rimosso il chiodino con le pinze

I cut a section of the earrings base to make it invisible on the front

Ho ritagliato una parte della clip per renderla invisibile.

And glued the clip on the back of the earring.

Ho incollato la clip sul retro dell'orecchino.
