You’ll need
-perspex of (±2mm thick)
-stanley or surgeon knife
-ruler
-epoxy glue
-pair of earrings with a flat surface
-a pair of tiny bolts + nuts
-file
-marble printed self-adhesive plastic

This DIY is sort of a sequel to these perspex earrings I made a little over a year ago. With a touch of marble they get a luxe, slightly decadent feel to them. Also did a bit of a more extravagant experiment with a larger shape that covers half the ear, can’t wait to wear it!

/01 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.
/02 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.
/03 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.
/04 While the glue is drying cut out some of the marble plastic in whatever shape and stick it onto the perspex. I tried out countless figures, interrupted lines, diagonal panels, different layers..etc. It all looked awesome, but in the end my favorite design was the simplest, a block of ‘marble’ with the perspex surrounding it like a frame.

  16. This usually isn’t even my style,
    but this is brilliant.

    There’s something about the marbled texture that crosses the line between minimalist and complicated in a way that I can’t get enough of.

    It’s like the pattern is mysterious in this understated way, and I absolutely love how you apply it. You’ve got me drooling over that sweatshirt several posts ago, and now these earrings are A MUST make.

    Thank you for inspiring me everyday.

    Wow, this is right out of the future. I think you are ahead of your time. 🙂 I love the bigger version, it’s so unusual. I think if you really want to go the quirky way, you can wear these earrings mismatched – the bigger one in one ear and the smaller one in the other. 🙂

    I love them but dislike them at the same time. Is that even possible?

    What I mean is I like the concept but I don’t see myself wearing them in reality.

  33. Really i appreciate the effort you made to share the knowledge.The topic here i found was really effective to the topic which i was researching for a long time.

  34. When it comes to fine jewelry, the shared importance of dramatic lighting and security precautions makes laying out and outfitting this type of emporium an exacting task. Good blog.

  36. Heya i’m for the first time here. I came across this board and I find
    It truly helpful & it helped me out a lot. I’m hoping to present something back and
    help others like you helped me.
