C.O.M. Fashion Friday- {Painted Chevron Earrings}

*something new to report on c.o.m.*

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO LIKE ME ON FB you may of read that now on C.O.M “Fridays” I am going to do Hand Crafted, re-fashioned…
“Fashion Fridays!”

It can be anything you have made relating to fashion, or something you re-fashioned and I want to feature you!!! You can email me at jenglamgirl@gmail.com I would really love great taken pictures the larger and clearer the better. Before and after  pics. and a tutorial would be great. I also would love you or your model modeling the re-fashion. 

I have seen many of you re-fashion something, so please email me and let me get you featured!
so I MADE some {CHEVRON EARRINGS} with some earrings I have had forever.
HOW TO: I started with the original earrings, painted them with yellow acrylic paint 4-5 coats let dry in between. Then flip them over and paint the other side let thoroughly dry. Next I used vinyl and selected the zig zag pattern from my Cricut using the Platinum Schoolbook cartridge. I then laid the vinyl over the earrings and snipped off any over hang. I then used white acrylic paint and painted white over the yellow. I did two coats, let dry, and then do the same to the other side. Peal off vinyl. Lastly I finished the earrings with Krylon Triple Thick Clear Glaze, to give them shine. Let dry over night and re-add your rings and hooks and show them off.
P.S. for some reason the clear glaze made the cheetah print come through even with 5 coats.. (spray paint would be better, but I didn’t have any and my project was free!) anyway don’t judge PLEASE, they are handmade… “I could call them Cheetah Chevron HA!” eh’ the cheetah gives them character!”

  1. Oh wow! LOVE the new earrings Jenn! I will definitely keeps these in mind, and maybe make some myself.. Sometimes you just have to have that one certain color, and it’s nice to know that I won’t HAVE to shop all around the world to find it! I can just make my OWN earrings in whatever color I WANT! Oh, I definitely like that!… Have a great weekend! ~tina
