raffia woven earrings

The natural fiber of raffia adds a unique touch to these trendy earrings! Make a unique pair in a neutral or metallic tone for yourself and/or friends!
Step 1

Measure and cut about 36" [91.4 cm] of both white and natural raffia. Hold them together and loosely tie onto a large connector ring.

Step 2

Hold a large jump ring (from the jump ring pack) in the middle of the large ring.

Step 3

Weave the raffia over inner ring, through the space between the rings and then under the outer ring. Continue to weave over and under the rings until you have reached your starting point.
TIP: Keep the raffia tight as you work around and be sure to hold the middle ring in place, so your raffia stays even as you weave.

Step 4

Untie your original knot (from Step 1), then tie the ends in a knot on the back. Trim the ends and add a dab of glue to secure.

Step 5

Measure and cut about 12" [30.5 cm] of both white and natural raffia. Hold them together and loosely tie onto a small connector ring.

Step 6

Repeat Steps 2-4 for the small, top woven ring of your earring.

Step 7

Use a smaller jump ring (from the jump ring pack) to connect the larger woven ring to your smaller woven ring.

Step 8

Glue an ear post to the back and let dry.

Step 9

Repeat Steps 1-8 for a second earring.
