EASY 5 Minute DIY Beaded Earrings | Repurposing Toggle Clasps

5 Minute DIY Beaded Earrings | Repurposing Toggle Clasps


Hey everyone! In today’s tutorial I will show you how to make a pair of very quick and easy beaded earrings, which repurpose toggle clasp components as bead frames. Multiple toggle clasps often show up in the Bargain Bead Box subscription, and they are usually quite decorative. To put those toggles to good use, and show off their unique style, why not use them in a creative way?

Not sure what to do with the leftover toggle bar components?! Stay tuned for this Friday’s September 2020 Finished Jewelry Update video where I will show you how I repurposed those in a Bargain Bead Box inspired piece as well. 🙂

Toggle Clasp Earring Materials:

✔ 2 – Toggle Clasps

✔ 2 – Ear Wire Findings 

✔ 2 – Beads of Choice 

✔ 2 – Headpins 

Jewelry Pliers (round nose, chain nose) 

Wire Cutters 

Bead Mat

White Heart Gift Tag (earring card) 

1/16″ Hole Punch (earring card) 

Additional Info:

I came up with this design when working with the contents of September Bargain Bead Box; theme: “Fancy Forest” If you haven’t heard of the subscription, check out my recent unboxing video to see an example of the contents. At just $17.95 shipped (US), it’s an amazing value, especially considering they include strands of semiprecious gemstone beads. Use coupon code OPAL2 to save $2 off your first bead box, if you haven’t already. Bead Boxes continue to be the creative fuel that spark my designs.
