Spring brings in colorful flowers and a beautiful time to take selfies 😛
Out of the flowers found in Chennai, I like arali (Nerium oleander), though its poisonous plant, especially to animals if consumed in large quantities… But it does look pretty 🙂 Doesn’t it?? 🙂 (Image taken from internet)
This post is based on this flower.. You can see my other spring DIY’s here
Resin rose – color of your choice
rhinestone (i used petal shaped – 10)
silver color spacer beads
silver color chain
silver color jump rings
silver color earring hooks
silver color headpins
Take a headpin and form a loop (or an eye pin). Now take another headpin and insert a rhinestone on both the headpins (my rhinestone had 2 holes on each side, so I am using 2 headpins. Also, by using 2 headpins for the rhinestones, this makes sure that the rhinestone doesn’t keep on rotating.
Now add a spacer bead. Keep on adding a rhinestone and a spacer bead in the lower headpin. I added 5 rhinestones and 4 spacer beads. While adding more beads and rhinestone, start bending your headpins in a curve shape, I wanted to maintain some gap between rhinestone to get a nice curve and to make sure the beads don’t move. close the loop on top headpin, on the bottom one, close it by bending & pressing the pin. this is how it should look like now.
Now, open 2 jump rings and add chain on the both loops created on the top headpin. Attach the earring hooks in the middle of the chain using a jump ring.
It looks pretty already.. Time to bring spring beauty.. Take resin rose and paste a headpin on the back. To avoid it from moving, I attached a small piece of felt (in the same color of the rose) on the back
Form a loop on the headpin and attach the rose to the middle of the chain where your earring hooks are attached. This way, the rose would dangle from the middle.
This is how your earring looks like now 🙂
Hello Spring! say that to my ears 🙂
I love wearing this earring, its pretty and charming.. what do you guys think?
