Tips for Seniors to Finish Jewelry Without Help?

Tips for Seniors to Finish Jewelry Without Help?  - Discussion on Jewelry Making Journal

I have been teaching a seniors’ jewelry class for over a year now – we make stretch bracelets, as well as necklaces long enough to go over their heads (with monofilament).

They absolutely love it!

Now they are asking about earrings.

I have the supplies, but was wondering – what is an easy way for them to make these themselves?

I can’t think of anything beyond having them string onto headpins and I will use the pliers to make the simple loops at the top to attach to ear wires.

Is there any other way, so that they can make the whole thing themselves?

I knot the bracelets and necklaces anyway, just wondering if there is a way they can feel like they made the whole thing.

Thank you.
