Earring Finding for an Eight Year Old Girl?

What Type of Earring Finding for an Eight Year Old Girl -  - Discussion on Jewelry Making Journal?

I have been making jewelry for a few years but never needed to make something specific for my Grandaughter before.

She is 8 yrs. old and likes to “make” jewelry like me.

She wants me to make her some clip on earrings. She has high expectations from her Grammy!

I have never made this style for a little girl before and I wonder if my usual style will be too big for her ear. (She lives very far away.)

Does anyone have any experience with choosing clip on earring findings for a young girl?

Thank you.

  • Hi Anita! Here’s a little different idea that may work for your granddaughter:

    See my Wire Ear Cuff with Changeable Dangles (Tutorial).

    Thank you for your unique idea. I think my Grandaughter would think Grammy was pretty cool to make her this style.

  • Karen says:

    I’ve made lots of earrings for little girls using clip on bases. I’ve used single pearls, bicycles, flowers, kitties, puppies, Disney characters, etc. Find out what she likes and what her interests are and there are charms/findings galore out there! Enjoy your granddaughter and the blessings she brings!

    When I was a young teenager I wore earrings that they called “Pierced LOOK”. It didn’t have a big base like clip-on does. It usually had one small dangle on it. It worked very well until I got my ears pierced …. at age 23.

    Thank you for your suggestions. I now have a better idea of how to make these little earrings.
