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.
