Guitar Pick Earrings Tutorial

on February 20, 2013

Earrings are one of my many weaknesses. If I find an unusual or whimsical pair for a reasonable price, I must have them. Several years ago I bought a pair of earrings made out of guitar picks from a local company. I get comments almost every time I wear them, so I’ve been wanting to make some.

As with any craft, you need the right tools. I specifically lacked something that would cleanly punch a hole through a plastic pick until I invested in a Crop-A-Dile. I bought one a while back intending to use it for setting eyelets, but I’ve found the Crop-A-Dile handier for punching holes in a variety of materials. It is a little pricey, so make sure to use one of those 40% off craft store coupons. The Crop-A-Dile is typically not exempt from them.

Supplies:

  • Guitar Picks
  • Crop-A-Dile
  • Jump Rings
  • Earring Wires
  • Pliers

Step One:

Punch holes in each of your guitar picks with the 1/8 in. side of the Crop-A-Dile.

Step Two:

Attach jump rings to your guitar picks, and then attach those to earring wires.

In no time flat, you’ll have a funky pair of earrings that can double as guitar picks in a pinch. Happy repurposed crafting!
