In this video tutorial, I am doing two things.
- Fulfilling a JO 304 assignment of posting a process-oriented video.
- Introducing you to a kind of crafting that is very special to me!
When I was in middle school, a local jeweler showed me the basics of how to make earrings. Since then, I have been hooked on the creativity of jewelry-making. Particularly earring-making became my favorite pass-time, which led me to make my own company in 7th grade! I sold my earrings at craft fairs and did quite well for myself considering my age. I continued making earrings intermittently throughout high school and college, usually just for fun or to relieve stress.
A trip to Bogota, Colombia last year inspired me to reinvent my craft! Women in Colombia were sporting these BEAUTIFUL, full, colorful earrings. They just looked AMAZING to me and I needed to have them! I asked a jeweler in a city outside Bogota to walk me through how to make them, and I have been creating them in Boston ever since.
Here is a video tutorial explaining how it’s done. Enjoy it, and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. Have fun with it!
