As I was browsing ELLE magazine, I found some fantastic earrings by Dolce & Gabbana. Unfortunately I don’t have the £505 to spend on such lovely trinkets!
What I do have is a big crafting stash, so I sat down and came up with these:
And here are the luscious Dolce & Gabbana earrings I was inspired by:

Try as I might, I couldn’t find these online.
So here’s a picture snapped on my phone, from ELLE UK, September edition!
As you can see, my earrings didn’t turn out much like the designer ones at all, hence only being inspired by! I'm sticking to my resolution to use up more of my stash rather than buy more.
These were fairly easy to make once I’d figured out a design, though the process was a little slap-dash. I didn’t have any nice filigree to mount the flower onto, so I used multi-strand bracelet links instead. A quick eBay search for ‘round filigree’ throws up a heap of options though, at reasonable prices!
And of course, I took pictures along the way so that I could share a tutorial with you!
