DIY Spike Jewelry 3

Welcome back for the third installment of spike bead projects, eating up the leftovers from my spike bead necklace. I've begun to wonder what I can't make super glue and these beads. Perhaps a model of the Eiffel Tower? These Eddie Borgo earrings are too perfect to not try to make.

$315? Gee, it's tempting, but I think I'll pass. DIY instead!

Materials:
Two spike beads
E6000
End cap/tube beads
Toothpicks (makes applying glue much easier!)

1. Glue bead inside cap.
2. Glue post base to cap.
3. Let dry.



That's it! I feel like I'm cheating you a little with such simple projects, but isn't it empowering to think that a few materials and even fewer steps can recreate a designer look? Less is more, my friends, less is more.

  2. Cute earrings! They go so well with your blonde hair. :)

    I don't think it's cheating if you come up with something that cool. Especially if you can avoid spending 300 dollars!
