To make the earrings hooks:
- Take a thin wire about 2 inches in length.

How to Make Earrings:
Making Earrings using a clay.
Step 1: Take a baking clay of your choice of color.
Step 2: Roll the clay into a ball like shape.
Step 3: Repeat the same with all the colors.
Step 4: Now mix all the colors together to create a funky pattern.
Step 5: Roll into a flat thin shape using a rolling pin.
Step 6: Take a shape cutter of your choice and cut through the clay to get the desired shape. You can also use a blade to cut out and carve shapes of your choice.
Step 7: Once that’s done, pierce a small hole at the top using a pen or pencil, so that the hook could fit through.
Step 8: Place the clay on a baking tray and bake at 1800 C for 2-3 minutes or until the clay hardens up.
Step 9: After it has been cooled down, insert the earring hook through the hole that we poked before or you can also stick it using a hot glue gun.
Make Earrings Using a Marble.
Step 1: Take a marble of any color.
Step 2: Heat it over a candle for about 20 seconds using a plier and keep a glass of ice cold water handy.
Step 3: Immediately dip the heated marble in the water. The marble cracks from within due to the sudden temperature change.
Step 4: You will see a pattern that is formed within the marble.
Step 5: Wipe the marble thoroughly and stick the hook using a glue.
Make Earrings using a Satin Ribbon.
Step 1: The most feasible way to make tassel earrings is by using a Satin or Silk ribbon. Take a wide and broad ribbon.
Step 2: Measure 7 centimeters from one end and cut it.
Step 3: Using a scissor or a blade, start ripping of its strands. Continue doing it till you reach the very top.
Step 4: Once this has been done, overlap its sides, one above the other and tie a knot at one end using a thread.
Step 5: Suspend a round knob where you have tied the knot and attach a hook to it.
Step 6: You can also use different beads and customize as per your needs.
Make Hoop Earrings using a wire.
Step1: Take a thin metal wire, a bottle cap and a nose plier. Bend the wire using the bottle cap or any other hard object but of the same radius. Once a desired shape is achieved, cut the wire.
Step 2: Bend one end of the wire into an obtuse angle and roll the other end into a small hook just like we did it in Step 3 of How to make hooks.
Step 3: Place the hoop onto a surface and even it out using a hammer or any hard object.
Step 4: You can wear them plain or customize it using colorful bead assortments.
Make Earrings using a Safety pin.
These Earrings are super easy to make and look really cool. All you need is a safety pin and some beads (optional). You might want to sanitize the safety pin before putting it on to avoid your piercing being infected. You can also make a chain by locking one pin onto the other. Make sure you chose a thin safety pin.
Make Earrings Using a Paper Quill.
Quill the paper into your desired shape and pattern and attach the hook.
Step1: Take a thin A4 sized paper and color it as per your needs.
Step 2: Draw a long thin cone on the paper and cut it accordingly.
Step 3: Roll this cone across the pointy edge to the base. Attach the hooks onto these rolled over beads and there you have it!
