This simply ear-resistible ear cuff will make all your friends want to know where they can get one of their own. This design is simply fun for any age.

What You'll Need:

  • 2-1/2 inches nylon line
  • 2 crimp beads
  • Silvertone ear cuff with hole on side
  • 2 hematite star beads
  • Silvertone twist tube


  • Needle-nose pliers
  • Scissors

Step 1: String a crimp bead onto the nylon line, then thread the nylon line through the hole in the ear cuff. Pull the line back through the crimp bead so the short end just clears the crimp bead. Crimp down. The ear cuff is now attached to the nylon line. Trim the excess short line, leaving one line remaining.

Step 2: Next, string a star bead, the twist tube, and the other star bead onto the line.

Step 3: String the other crimp bead on the nylon line. Slide all the beads down, leaving 1/2 inch of nylon line between the ear cuff and the first star, and crimp down. Trim the excess line.
