DIY Recycled Wine Cork Geometric Earrings

Upcycling wise, wine corks are one of the easiest materials to work with, they are easy to cut, lightweight and work great as jewelry pieces. I particularly like using them to make earrings, since corks are so light, the earrings made from it are super comfortable to wear all day round.

So here's how I made this recycled pair of jewelry:

Start by cutting the wine cork. I cut mine with about 1/2 a cm. You want it to be thick enough to be able to pierce a hole through. Cut two slices for each earring and then cut them in half.

Use a needle or something similar, to make a hole that goes through the center of the cork, try to make it as straight as possible.

To add the color I chose to use regular markers, I also tried acrylic paint, but I prefer that the marker is see-through and shows the texture underneath.

Next step is optional, but I painted the sides of the pieces with white acrylic paint.
Once that is dry, spray paint both sides with clear varnish to add shine and protect the color.

Cut a piece of wire and create a loop at the end.

Then put the pieces of cork through the wire, cut the excess wire and add a drop of superglue to keep it secure.

Lastly, attach the earring hooks and that is it!
