I usually dread Mondays…the day AFTER the weekend. Usually I’m thinking to myself…I need at least ONE more weekend day!! But today I came back into work, feeling refreshed and energetic! And why you ask (even if you didn’t I’m definitely going to tell you)!?
This pair of Enamel Cluster Studs was so adorable that I could not get them out of my head! I couldn’t remember for the longest time where they were from originally, so I decided to do the next best thing – create a pair inspired by the original.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery no?
I started with this plain studded cluster earring. I didn’t plan any to do any sort of pattern with the colours I chose as there was an uneven amount of studs to paint. Ahh…right. That brings me to paint…what exactly did I use to get that “enamel” look?
Just make sure that when painting products that have studs, you’ll need to coat them 2-3 times at least to get a thick coating.
It’s supposed to end up looking like a “bubble-effect”. And I do recommend getting something to coat the finished project to give it a shiny effect (although I didn’t do this).
Here I’ve started with one yellow “bubble” & one purple-blue “bubble”. Then from there I just painted the studs in whatever combination looked the best. Like I said before, there doesn’t have to be any rhyme or rhythm.
Just go with what you think looks good!
At the end of painting the clusters, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to paint the rest of the earring or leave the beads clear.
Also next on my list to add some varnish to: twin bracelets & “diamond” drop earrings!
