How to Create Unique Eco Earrings From Nuts!
I love to support the environment so eco friendly Tagua nuts are otherwise know as vegetable ivory and super non edible nuts that can make great jewellery.
I decide on a pair that match and the super smooth surface is very pretty but also hard wearing and strong.
I like to use round nosed pliers and this is easy way to bend metal to make earrings. I cut the metal pins to fit the size of earring I need. The centre of the nut already has a pre drilled hole.
Next I use the rounded nosed pliers to make a loop to fix a jump ring to. The knack is to make loop and then squeeze tightly to stop the ring slipping off.
Once the loop is secure it’s threaded with a small jump ring and pinched together with the pliers.
Nearly ready to wear! I Just need to fix the sterling silver ear hooks on. I prefer good quality large ones and it’s just a matter of hooking the little ring on to the hook.
I’m so pleased with this pretty pink pair of eco earrings made from Tagua nuts! Now let’s see what colour to make the next pair!!

Did you buy your slices pre dyed, or did you dye them yourself?
