Seashell earrings DIY. Yes, other one!

Other one DIY after summer - other pair of seashell earrings. This is one of the simplest projects I’ve ever posted. 

You will need:
  • shells 
  • flat nose pliers
  • two pieces of thin chain of about 8 cm/2" length
  • earrings hooks
  • 2 jump rings about 5-6 mm/ 0.02" 

Seashells I picked up were already with holes (well, I was lucky). You can drill holes in them. How to do it? - Refer to the husband / friend / brother, they come up with, I'm not to know the first thing about this.
My box of shells probably has enough for many pairs of earrings. Sort through yours until you find pairs you like.

Open one jump ring, and thread it into the hole in the shell and lock.

Then open the earrings hook, turn the loop and insert into the middle of the chain.

Put the ring with shell and close earring hook.

Repeat operations for the second earring and voila - your earrings are ready! 
Wear them and be like a mermaid!

Looks like they are easy to make. I could use this as a basis and add lots of components there, right? Thanks for the instruction!
