Tools & Materials:
Assortment of Plectrums
Flat back beads or Cabachons
Firstly you will want to drill a small hole into your plectrums. A 2 or 3mm drill bit is ideal. Position your holes wherever you want to attach the earring hook to. I did a few with holes at the wider end and a few at the narrower, pointier end. I also had some metal plectrums that had holes already in them so I skipped this step for those ones.
Position your gems on top of your plectrums and glue in place. Once the glue has dried you can assemble your earrings. I used a silver paillette on the back of each of these earrings just to add another colour and texture.
The next pair I made was using metal plectrums. They had 3 holes along the top but when I fixed the gem onto the front, the middle hole got covered up so I used chain on the two end holes to connect them to the earring hook.
I went on to make another pair that had 2 plectrums on each earring, both hanging the opposite way to create a layered look. I use a diamond shaped gem this time.
To make a necklace just follow the same principle. Use a jump ring to connect the Plectrum to the necklace chain.
