Everything’s coming up roses! Sweet smelling resin rosebuds have wooed us over in a major way. Prada boasted delicate floral details on everything from dresses to dangly earrings. Who What Wear and I have both been drooling over the Italian fashion house’s coveted Crystal rose earring and agreed we should plant our DIY seed and grow ourselves a pair, inspired by these lovlies. And yes, you should too!
To create: Use wire cutters to snip rhinestone trim into two equal pieces (this will determine how long you wish your earrings to hang). String fishing line through the flower bead and double knot around rhinestone trim and snip. For extra hold, you may want to dab clear nail polish on your knot. Apply a small amount of krazy glue to attach the applique to the back of the chain. Make sure the flower bead, rhinestone trim and applique are all facing the same direction. Wait until glue has dried, and adhere earring backs to the back of the flower bead with glue.
