DIY: Suzanna Dai inspired Ribbon & Crystal Earrings

When I saw a pair of Suzanna Dai‘s earrings in this month’s Lucky Magazine, I immediately fell in love.  I went directly to her site where I spent a good half hour poring over her entire collection.  The brightly colored earrings, the crystal accents… I need it all.  Luckily, I realized rather quickly that I could make a pair of her earringsmyself with materials I already had in my apartment.  I might just be making these for everyone on my shopping list this holiday season… they are just too fabulous (and easy, too!)

Materials:

Full tutorial after the jump…
1.  Attach your ribbon to the ring with a bit of glue.
2.  Tightly wrap the ribbon around your ring.
3.  Continue to wrap, holding the ribbon tightly against the ring.
4.  Finish up by trimming your ribbon and adhering the it to the ring with more glue.

5.  Snip off a small piece of your accent ribbon and apply a drop of glue.
6.  Press the two ends of your ribbon together, firmly.
7.  Attach the earring post to one side of the ribbon.
8.  Attach the rhinestone to the other side.

9.  Using a bit of Jewel-It, attach a small piece of rhinestone trim to the accent ribbon.

10.  Attach several small pieces of rhinestone trim to the bottom of the ring, forming a fringe.
Finishing touches (not pictured.)  Let dry overnight.  The next day, glue the opposite end of the top piece of rhinestone trim to the back of the accent ribbon.  Trim the ends of the fringe so that they are all uniform.  Let it dry for a few hours, and your earrings are ready to wear!

P.S.  If you don’t want to make them, you can use Lucky’s Promo code “LUCKYBREAKS13″ and get 30% off of your order with Suzanna.  Beautiful, beautiful gems!
