Beautiful earrings without a piercing

Tutor Anna Campbell looks at ear piece designs without a piercing.

A few weeks ago I was teaching the Beginners Beading class London Jewellery School. During that class you learn techniques to make earrings, two types of necklace and two types of bracelet. At this particular class one student asked if she could make clip on earrings as her ears weren’t pierced. It is an unusual request as most people who attend the class have pierced ears but it got me to thinking about earring designs without piercings. We tend to think of the Pat Butcher style earring but there are some fashionable alternatives out there.

Hook style

This style of earring has a wire hook that goes around the top of the ear to secure the earring and tends to have dangles


I love this dangle feather earring cuff from Anni Jurgenson
