DIY: 5- Minute Hex Nut Earrings

These really are the most simple earrings I've made yet! They're perfect for a night out, or to just refresh an old outfit. If you'd like to make some yourself, here's how:

- You'll need 4 8mm bronze nuts, 2 10mm silver nuts, 2 pieces of 60mm long fine chain, 2 earring hooks and some pliers.

Firstly, Thread a bronze, then a silver, then another bronze nut onto a piece of fine chain. Then using your pliers, open up the ring at the bottom of the earring hook, slide on the two ends of the chain and close it off again. Then (obviously) repeat the process for the second earring.

These can be made using materials found in most peoples' homes, won't break the bank, and look pretty damn cool too! What do you think?
