Punk Rock Fishing Lure Earrings

Punk Rock 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. People like shiny, colorful things, and they hope fish do, too.



Step #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.

Step #2: Assemble.

  • 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.
  • Wow. That was quick. Rinse and repeat.
