Diamonds may be a girls best friend, however I’ve always hankered to dazzle and drip in colorful precious stones. Were you born into a blah birthstone? Teter between Aquamarine to Amethyst? No matter what stone you want to own, consider your wish granted! I’m currently crushing on these gems: Mary Katrantzou’s Fall 2010 Collection of Kaleidoscope graphic gem dresses, McQueen’s Gold Angel heels, I’m fallin’ for Fallon, and hot for Harry Winston! Bling is IN. Achieve this look by recycling your fashion magazines into gemstone earrings fit for a queen (or you)!
Cut out colorful gem ads and editorial rocks and secure onto card stock using a glue stick. Paint a layer of Mod Podge. Once dry, cut out around the outside silhouette of your earring. Use a glue gun and adhere onto a wide ribbon, trimming around the edge and leave a slight border. Punch a little hole and slide in your earring wires.
P.S.- Gems are truly truly truly outrageous! (obvious 80’s Jem reference for the younger set).
