Refashion of the Week! – Black Stud Earrings to Black Hook Earrings

I only have time for a quick refashion this week sorry! I bought these incredible earrings at Lovisa a few days ago.

These are a drop stud earrings.  I’m sensitive to cheap metal and I won’t be able to wear them as they are, so, I’m going to convert them to silver hooks! I know I’ve done a few tutorials like this before but this one is a little different. I also wanted to show off these earrings!
This is super easy. All I did was open the jump rings with jewellery pliers and removed the studs (you could also just cut them open). I then added hooks!
See this previous tutorial which teaches you how to attach hooks. There is information about supplies there too – it should be cheap and easy to come across jewellery pliers and hooks from craft stores and online if you don’t have them.
 
Even if you’re not sensitive to metals you might like to try this. I find it more comfortable to wear earrings this size on hooks or clip-ons anyway.
You could definitely convert these to silver or surgical steel studs by cutting off the old post and glueing on a new one. The little loop on the bottom on the stud would be easy to break off too with jewellery pliers (these usually just cut off nice and cleanly).
