- Tree bark
- 4 Beads (2 sets of 2)
- 2 Head pins
- 2 Earring wires (or make your own)
- Round nose pliers
- Chain nose pliers
- Bent nose pliers (or other pliers)
You don’t have to take the bark off the tree, you can find park around the ground from certain types of trees. Check out your local parks.
You can use scissors or just break it apart.
Be careful, the bark can be pretty delicate, in fact, I broke some off when I was making my dangles. Just be gentle and you’ll be fine.
(So, that also would be an indication that these earrings probably aren’t for every day wear, but more for special earthy occasions!)
Or you can make your own earring wires.
