For the Makers

Birchbox Breakdown

After a day spent staring at our computer screen, we’re ready for a creative project – especially one that results in striking stud earrings. These edgy beauties instantly level up even a plain white button-down. You bring the hand-eye coordination and artistic sensibility, and For The Makers provides the rest: pearl cabochons, silver spike studs, black diamond marquise stones, butterfly backs, and glue. Allow the earrings to dry for 24–72 hours after assembly, and you’ve got a pair of handmade marvels that will serve you well for years to come. Exclusive to Birchbox!

How it Works

Create elegant earrings from this carefully selected collection of high-quality gems. We love the concept of classic pearls offset by shiny black diamond stones and tiny silver spikes. For The Makers includes everything you need to execute it, from glue to earring backs. Their beautifully photographed instructions make the project a pleasure—view a full tutorial here.

How to Use

Try wearing these in place of your usual pearls for a more distinctive look. The studs will lend a feminine, vintage-y flair to your outfit, whether you’re clad in a cute cardigan to meet your boyfriend’s mom, or a sharp black blazer for cocktails with a client.

Very simple project.......well worth the $$! Beautiful packaging, very special feel, high end materials. Love that everything was included......I do wish the instructions weren't only online though.

Classy
Purchased

A little difficult to make but worth the fuss. It takes more patience than a steady hand. The glue is not smelly and it dries in such away that it allows you to get out of its way.

Fun and Elegant
Purchased

I have gotten so many compliments on these earrings and it's so much fun to tell people I made them myself. These help dress up any outfit and are great to wear to the office or for a nice evening out. Can't wait to try some more of these DIY projects!

So fun!
Purchased

These earring were simple and fun to make. I mixed it up a little and made my own design vs. the design in the picture with the stones included and the effect was classy and unique. My only complaint was that instructions aren't included- you have to visit the website to access them.
