DIY Red Carpet-worthy Earrings
I was asked by the FABULOUS Candie Cooper (candiecooper.com) to participate in a really fun blog hop! The theme of this blog hop is DIY Red Carpet-worthy Earrings, but I took it a step further and decided to show how to make them yourself :D See below:
This is my addition to the party! Elongated, delicate and color-blocking with knitted wire and crystals.
With 18 gauge wire, I started by creating the shape for the earrings using Now That's a Jig! .
Using needle and beading thread, I stitched a large crystal (from Jesse James Beads) between the knitted wire.
Then I stitched smaller crystals into the knitted wire to make the fringe. When the threads met up, I tied them together and stitched them into the knitted wire to hide them!
And there you have it! Easy pair of earrings for any gala occasion!
