You've seen them everywhere, and even Nicole is a huge fan. You know what I'm talking about: the double sided earring. This trend is going strong and is one of my personal favorites. When I find something I love, I try to figure out how I can make it myself. These pearl earrings are no different.

This trend is a fun one to jump on. Earring have not had this much excitement since the double-piercing trend started. Since it's always more fun to create the perfect accessories than to buy them, we tinkered and played until we found a system that worked. 

Double Sided Earring Supply List

Here's what you need for this DIY. One quick trip to the craft store and you'll be ready to start crafting. You likely have many of these at home and I love repurposing older accessories to make new creations. Don't be afraid to pull apart necklaces and earrings you have on hand but don't wear anymore.

  • Pearls
  • Glue (I love E6000)
  • Earring backs and studs
  • Pliers (Note: You don't have to have pliers--- if you want them, dollar stores usually have the mini versions)
