Classic 9ct Gold Pearl Drop Earrings

Classic 9ct Gold Pearl Drop Earrings

These classic pearl drop earrings couldn't be simpler to make. They add a stylish, classic look to any outfit, whether it's for daytime or evening. Pearls are often worn for special occasions such as weddings and these simple earrings would look beautiful worn with a classic dress on a special day. They would make a great gift for the person that has everything!

All you need to make these earrings is the freshwater pearls, sterling silver pegs, sterling silver ear wires and some 'Devcon 5 Minute Epoxy' glue which is the glue that we recommend. The Devcon glue creates super-fast, high strength, high quality bonds and as it sets clear it is excellent for filling gaps so ideal for setting stones.

Are you thinking of making these as a gift? Why not add a presentation box or gift bag to your order.

Step by step instructions

Prepare the glue by mixing equal amounts of the resin and hardener in a small dish. Use a fine point such as a cocktail stick to dab a bit of glue onto the cap of the peg and gently place it in the half drilled hole in the cultured freshwater pearl. Once mixed, the glue sets in 5 minutes so ensure you set your pearl straight away. Gently place it down and leave it to set.

Once set, using a pair of snipe nose pliers, gently twist the loop in the earwires open and hang your peg with loop from the loop in the earwire then close the earwire securely.

There you have it, beautiful classic pearl drop earrings made in just a few minutes!
