I have ALWAYS loved earrings. All kinds of earrings. Delicate studs, edgy ear crawlers, and big, dangly, swingy earrings. My slight obsession may stem from the fact that my dad refused to let me get my ears pierced until I was a teenager, and I had to resort to stick on earrings back in my elementary school days and longingly admire my friends’ beautiful pierced earrings from afar. Ha! But whatever the reason for my earring love, I am super stoked about the big statement earring trend that’s happening right now.
Of course, I buy my fair share of ear baubles (speaking of baubles, have you checked out Bauble Bar’s line at Target? It’s a good one.), but of course, I also have to make some DIY statement earrings too! And today, I am really excited to share my latest experiment in DIY jewelry.
These fun earrings are really kind of blend three of my previous projects – the look and shape are similar to my clay and crochet necklaces, the alcohol ink technique is really similar to what I used for my alcohol ink vinyl decals, and finally the idea of lightweight shrinky dink earrings definitely comes straight from the success I have had with shrinky dink pins.
I am so happy with the way these earrings turned out, and I hope you will give them a try! I am sharing the full tutorial for the earrings over at the Crafts Unleashed blog, so head over there for the complete step by step instructions.
Until next time, Happy Making!
