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.

Project Steps

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.


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.
