Simply snip off the hooks and swivels from the lures, then just clip earring hooks into the holes in the lures and you’re done! This tutorial is perfect for the fishing enthusiast who is a little overwhelmed by jewelry shopping, because you can make some custom jewelry for the pierced person in your life without having to sweat your typical store-bought earring selection. In fact, according to Kerry, one of the dubious perks of these unique adornments is that “you’re sure to impress strange men who recognize the lures.”
