Okay - it's another case of I love the earrings, I don't really love the color and I don't love the price. When I was browsing the interwebs I saw these Flexion Earrings from Anthropologie, and while I loved the shape, the all-silver isn't really my style. And they weren't that expensive, but since the color is off, it wasn't worth it to spend the money on it. So off I went and made my own with super simple materials that you may already have at home!
- Shrink plastic
- Hole punch
- Spray paint
- Jump rings
- Earring hooks
- Jewelry pliers
From some shrink plastic, cut off shapes similar to the one pictured above. I drew the images on a template and used that as a guide so my pieces would be uniform. Punch holes with your hole punch.
Bake according to your shrink plastic package's instructions. Mine almost always turns out like this so I sand them, see below:
Sand the sides and surfaces of your pieces in a criss-cross manner to emulate the semi-polished brass look. Spray paint with the color of your choice (I used silver for the diamond shapes and gold for the arrows) and let them dry.
Connect them with jump rings and attach them to earring hooks. And you are done!
Mine ended up to be about 2.5" in height - and I love it!
What colors would you paint this in? Tell me in the comments - or any of your suggestions, reactions, or just plain whatever! Love hearing from you guys. :) Hope your week is still great!
