Well, friend...shortly, you may have a new pair of earrings.
Let's begin our self-decorative expedition...
Step 1: Tools & Materials
Calloo-callay! Onward lovely soldiers! Say, you look smashing with that bindle.
Step 2: Find a Clip Art Heart
Save the image file to your computer.
P.S. Your eyes...they glimmer...like an iridescent bird of paradise. Jus' sayin...
Step 3: Trace the Heart
-Press the "Image Trace" button -> Illustrator will trace the heart and color it black. Black like your...heart.
P.S. Did I say your heart was black? Only because it contains unknown galaxies. Like space, girl. Like space.
Step 4: Resize the Heart
What size should you make it? It depends on the base you're attaching it to. My stud earring base is 6mm, so I'm going to make the heart 12mm.
P.S. Are you wondering how big my love is for you? Well, girl...it's simply unmeasurable by any human standard. Girl, even an alien would have trouble, even with their mega-space laser rulers.
Step 5: Duplicate the Heart
With both hearts selected, click the "Expand" button.
P.S. Did I say expand? Yes, I did. Kinda like the galaxy. And my adoration of you from your toenail to the queen-like crown of your head. Ever expanding, girl. Ever expanding.
Step 6: Finalize Your Laser File
P.S. Nothin'... Just...you know...thinkin' about you.
Step 7: Lasertime!
P.S. Girl, did you know that your body is a wonderland roller coaster of demure grace? Jus sayin'...
Step 8: Glue Hearts to Stud Earring Base
P.S. Just admiring your incredible skill and dexterity. Damn, woman, you got fingers like an elvin QUEEN...
Step 9: Bask in the Glory of Future Laser Jewelry!
And VOILA! Or, as my musician friends say...VIOLA!
Now...Strut. Strut. Strut.
Damn. Today was a good day for laserin'.
I made these gems at Techshop, a modern day marvel.
xoxo...until next time, my pretties...
