As it was my birthday yesterday and I can’t give you guys a piece of chocolate cake through the computer screen, I thought I’d treat you with this give away (the first ever on my blog!) instead. Leave your name and email HERE if you want a pair or follow the instructions below to make one yourself.
-perspex of aproximately 2mm thick
-stanley or surgeon knife
-pair of earrings with a flat surface
-a pair of tiny bolts + nuts
One Cut the plexiglass: Make an incision with a stanley knife by letting the knife glide along a ruler. Then lay the plate of plexiglass on a table with the slit just over the edge. By pressing down you´ll be able to snap it off with a nice and clean cut. Now you should have a rectangle which you can again break into smaller pieces until you have two rectangles that are of the sizes you need. Measurements of my earrings: 9.5cm x 3cm Two Using any kind of drilling machine (It is recommended to use a drill for metal. As I didn´t own that I used one for wood and it worked just fine.) Make little holes slightly of center, this way the perspex will not be poking your face. Three Now you can add the hardware. Roughen up the surface of the flat earrings and the flat top of the bolt and glue together. When dried you can just screw on the bolt with the tiny perspex plate in between and you’re all done.
