“L” stands for Long and Luxe. The lovely ladies at Who What Wear and I both fell hardcore for Chanel’s dramatic chain earrings, which embody these 2 “L’s”. Chanel’s SS11 runway boasted gold and black decadence that dripped and made jaws drop. Karl Lagerfeld’s sophisticated lady, toyed with her inner rebel- migrated downtown- and showed her wild side. Live long and prosperous, like a Lagerfeld Lady, and….P.S.- create something you’re longing for!
To create a waterfall of wonderful chain inspired by Uncle Karl’s, connect jump rings to long pieces of cut chain using small pliers. Create two long clusters of chain, attaching them together by threading fishing line through a ribbon clamp. This will create a full chain with lots of movement. Triple knot and snip off ends of fishing line. Use a strong adhesive glue to attach earring posts onto the back of the ribbon clamp. Hold in place for a few seconds, and let dry completely before moving. To achieve a bottom of black ombre, lay earrings on flat covered surface and lightly spray from middle down, using matte spray paint. Let dry- flip, and spray another light layer (PS- spray outside!) When earrings are dry, you’re ready to rock em!
