Two earrings made from copper foil.Disassembling a transformer from an old computer, I found copper foil and decided to make earrings from it. The copper foil is easy to fold, so I decided to fold the earrings. I really liked the simple and original look of these earrings.


Total Time: 20 Minutes


  • copper foil, I used foil from an old transformer
  • iron ruler
  • awl
  • scissors or knife
  • 2 jump rings
  • 2 earring fish hooks


  1. Use an awl and ruler to mark two rectangular pieces 0.75 "wide and 1.5" long. Cut off two rectangular pieces.

    I decided not to clean the darkened areas of the foil, as this will give the earrings a vintage look.
  2. Two pieces of recycled copper foil.
  3. Fold the ends in the middle as shown in the photo. Fold the foil carefully to avoid damaging it. Do not press hard when folding. Then flip over to the other side and fold the sharp corners to form a square. Fold back the corners as shown in the photo.
  4. Folding the copper into a triangle.
    Folding the copper into a square
    The folded square of copper.

  5. Make holes. Add the jump rings and attach the earrings to the fish hooks. Bend each earring slightly in the middle.
  6. Two copper squares with holes at the top.
