Cultured Freshwater Pearl Stud Earrings

Cultured Freshwater Pearl Stud Earrings

These pearl stud 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 earstuds 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.

Step by step instructions

First, check that the pegs on the earring settings are not too long, the pearls should be flat on the earring settings when you push them into the pegs. If necessary you can simply use a pair of snips to trim the peg slightly.

Prepare the glue by mixing equal amounts of the resin and hardener in a small dish. Once mixed, the glue sets in 5 minutes so ensure you set your pearl straight away.

We suggest supporting your earring posts in a piece of blue tak no your desk while gluing the pearls on. Use a fine point such as a cocktail stick to dab a little glue onto the cap of the peg and gently place it in the half drilled hole in the cultured freshwater pearl. Leave to dry until the glue is fully set and then they're ready to wear!
