Add pom-poms to wire

Take a wire 8 inches in length and insert the pom-poms through it.

Add a shell

Secure a jump ring through the shell and insert it through the wire.

Shape the earring

Insert the end of the wire through the last pom-pom and pull it together to create a circular shape.

Add jump ring

Twist the wires around each other and secure them by wrapping them around the jump ring. Cut off any excess wire.

Insert earring hook

Create a gap in the jump ring and insert the earring hook through it and close it.

Wrap bangle with ribbon

Apply a little fabric glue on the bangle and wrap the pom-pom ribbon around it.

Create shell pendant

In order to create the pendant for the earring, take four shells and glue them together. These shells take a really long time to stick together, so let them dry overnight.

Add jump rings

Attach a jump ring through one of the shells and close it. I added two more jump rings to the pendant to add extra length.

Add earring hook

Create a gap in the final jump ring and insert an earring hook through it, the pendant, and the pom-pom bangle, and close it up.

And those are our three earrings. I love all of them - they’re so colorful, and they exude joy. They’re also really quirky and unique; you’re not going to find anything like them in shops. I’m going to be wearing mine on Navratri, but they would also look great worn to a music festival or just chilling by the beach.
