I’ve been playing with my Designer Dangles from Taylored Expressions again! 😊 They have the best dies and faux leather sheets for making earrings in so many different styles. The possibilities are truly endless!

These are the 2 die sets I used. They each come with 3 different dies so you can make a lot of different combinations.
Here are just a few of the faux leather designs available from Taylored Expressions. You can see all of the options they have here.
I used all 3 of the Designer Dangles-Diamonds dies to make the pair on the left below. On the right, I used the large and small dies.
For the red, white, and blue pair below, I use all 3 of the Designer Dangles-Fringe dies. For the animal print pair, I used the large and small dies.
Taylored Expressions also carries earring wires, jump rings, and charms. And these jewelry tools for making your earrings. They also have some great videos on their YouTube channel to show how easy it is to make these cute earrings.
This is also a great set of jewelry making tools. If you want several different colors of jump rings, this set has 6 different finishes. And this is a nice set of earring wires. I like to include these silicone earring backs if I’m giving the earrings as a gift – I use them myself because who wants to lose one of these pretty creations! 😉
To die cut the earrings you’ll need a die cutting machine. I have a Cuttlebug that I love, but they don’t make it any more. 😦 I have heard good things about this Sizzix Big Shot Machine and it looks like a good replacement for the Cuttlebug. It has a 6-inch opening and is a great size to keep handy on your crafting table since it’s not too big.
Making your own earrings is so fun and they make great gifts! What kind will you make? I would love to see your creations!
