Super simple DIY fancy earrings you can make in under 10 minutes

I sat on my bed in my tiny 2-bedroom apartment that I shared with my best friend, my body bent over a pile of swirly turquoise beads the color of the ocean spread out on my duvet and a pair of crimping pliers in my head.

Diligently following the directions that came with the kit I had purchased from A.C. Moore the previous day — a kit that took me about 30 minutes to decide on — I slowly and carefully strung each individual bead on the string.

After a failed attempt trying to close up a crimp bead and muttering a selection of colorful words under my breath, I tried it again.

My eyes lit up as I realized I had made my first piece of jewelry in about a decade. Nevermind that it looked like a child had made it and I would only wear it a handful of times. I had mastered a brand new technique (for me). I wanted to jump and shout with excitement.

People, I MADE this! Do you not realize how monumental this is?

(I think my roommate was less impressed than I, but who cared?)

There is an incredible sense of pride when you make something with your hands for the first time, a warmth that fills your body like a mug of velvety rich hot chocolate.

Even though I made that bracelet well over a decade ago, I still remember that feeling.

You don’t need to make anything complicated to feel that sense of pride. Sometimes the most beautiful things that fill you with a sense of accomplishment can be made in ten minutes or less.

Like these DIY fancy earrings.
