Fishing Lure Earrings
Looking for some punk-rock glam that shows off the creative crafter inside? Fishing lure earrings may
be the perfect cure. Lots of inspiration can come from a tackle shop.
You will need: Spinner fishing lures ( 2), pair of ball-and-loop earring posts (or earwires), wire cutters,
1. Remove the hook.
Carefully cut off the hook at its “eye” with the wire
cutters. Watch out for those gnarly, three-pronged
“trouble” hooks! Dump the hook.

Wow. That was quick. Rinse and repeat.
Using your needlenose pliers, open the loop on the
earring post. Slide the loop of the earring through the
eye of the fishing lure, and close the loop. Add additional
baubles (sinkers, anyone?) to taste.
