Handmade Earrings


It was so fun to meet up with other creatives & see some old painting & drawing pals last night at the Creative Collaborative. I’ll be honest, I hadn’t planned what I was going to talk about, so I was a little scatter-brained. All-in-all it went well, though. CJane was inspiring, too. I wore these earrings last night. Earrings that I made in about 2 seconds, inspired by Jenn’s geometric painted blocks and this Clare Vivier hot pink clutch (via).

These earrings are the easiest on the face of the planet to make. Want the full DIY? Here we go.

• S U P P L I E S  • 

  1. You’ll want to cut out your leather to the desired shape. I decided on a circle.
  2. Glue the leather onto the posts.
  3. Allow glue to set/cool.
  4. Paint geometric asymmetrical shapes with contrasting colors
  5. Wear.

Wasn’t that a breeze? Now go make a million for all of your earring-wearing girlfriends. Aren’t my shoes hot? They have snake-skin details on ’em & they matched my earrings rather well. My sister-in-law took this pic last night. Here’s the full outfit from last night.
