DIY: Jeweled statement earrings

I’ve been experimenting with making expensive looking jewelry without the soldering aspect. With a little PVC, some glue and a few little rhinestones, it’s super simple to make some gorgeous jeweled earrings.

YOU WILL NEED:

A collection of rhinestones
Two small pieces of clear PVC sheet
Superglue (make sure it is the type that dries clear)
Scissors
Clip-on earring backs

WHAT TO DO:

1. Plan out your rhinestone design on a flat surface. Once you are happy with it, take a photo of the design with your phone.

2. Start gluing the stones to the piece of PVC, beginning from the top and copying the pattern you designed.

3. Use your scissors to cut out any pieces of PVC that aren’t covered by stones.

4. Continue until the design is done, trimming the PVC so it is completely hidden behind the rhinestones.

5. Leave overnight to dry.

6. Once the stones are set, turn over and glue the clip-on earring backs to the top edge of the PVC.

7. Once again, leave overnight to dry.

Tada!
