Don't Let Your Earrings Weigh You Down DIY

modified DIY jewelmint

Don’t let your earrings weigh down your ears. At a very young age, my father warned me about what happens to earlobes after years of wearing heavy earrings. I’ve been wearing studs every since. Over the past few years, I have branched out and started trying some dangling earrings. Jewelmint has so many cute earrings, but even with the help of the forums, I still have purchased earrings that are too heavy for my sensitive ears.  Instead of sending back these earrings or selling them, I decided to make them lighter by using some pliers.  It was extremely simple and worth the 5 minutes it took me to make the modification.

All you’ll need is a pair of pliers.  First, use jewelry pliers (or regular needle nose pliers) to open the rings on the center potion of the earrings. Second, reconnect the bottom part of the earrings to the stud.

 What do you think of these modified Jewelmint Screen Siren earrings?
