When I saw Angelina Jolie’s emerald earrings I knew I had to have them. Since I did not have her funds at my disposal I was forced to find something cheaper. The online shops were full of the imitations but the prices were crazy. I wasn’t going to say goodbye to that amount of money so I decided to make them myself.
To imitate the beauty of the precious stones of Angie’s earrings I chose Swarovski crystals. I bought some stones and silver spring hooks and got down to work. With little help of my pliers I put the products together and voilá! Here they all are:
Emerald green and sapphire blue are my favourite.
I liked making the jewelry so much that I decided to surprise female members of my family. I produced two sets in red and lilac and presented them to my mother and aunt. They were really happy. And frankly speaking a bit surprised to have such a talented relation.
In short, if you want something but can’t afford it, try DIY. Maybe you will discover a new talent you knew nothing about and make something beautiful for yourself.
