Intro: Chandelier Earrings
Searching the web for beautiful chandelier earrings but don't have the funds? I'll teach you how to convert an image of your favorite earrings into a sparkly wooden replica.
Step 1: Pick a Design
I google searched "chandelier earrings wedding" and downloaded an image of a pair I liked.
Step 2: Cut
I created a vector outline of the earrings using both Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, and laser cut the images out with a 120W laser cutter on 3/16" plywood.
Step 3: Poke
Poke away remaining bits of plywood clinging to the earrings or a small scalpel.
Step 4: Paint
I decorated the earrings with Glitter Blast gold spray paint and a wood sealant.
Step 5: Add the Hook
I went to my local craft store and bought earring hooks and jumper rings. I gently opened a jumper ring with a pair of pliers, slid an earring and earring hook through the loop, and pressed the ring back together to close the connection.
Place your earrings in a plush jewelry box and gift them to a lucky friend.
