So this is actually pretty similar to a pair of stud earrings that I did before 😛 But I thought I’d cover it again to show you how to get the same crystal effect around the border of the stud. Original earring:


What you need:

– 2 studs with indents at the base

– glitter nail polish OR if you want to go upmarket- and have the time- you can buy small Swarovski rhinestones and stick them on along the indent using E6000, a toothpick and tweezers. Personally I’m going with the nail polish 😛

Apply nail polish to the indent. Leave to dry then turn around the continue coating the rest of the indent. Repeat for the other stud.

Now you can stick them onto earring backs to fake the Mawi earrings- or you could use these bling-ed up studs for another DIY project! 🙂
