Another feather earring tutorial!
This tutorial shows you how to make the ASOS Feather Gem Drop Earrings.
They are really simple and quick to make. Feel free to experiment with colors of gems and/or feathers. The longest part of this tutorial is waiting for the glue to dry!
These are really good for any parties, because you can make them in about an hour and have a totally unique accessory in a pinch!
Step 1: Gather materials. Needed are pliers, ear wires, two feathers (synthetic please!), ribbon ends, superglue, and plastic gems in various sizes (the ones I used are for nails).
Step 2: Attach ribbon ends to the feathers. Then, lay out your gems. You will need 12 gems. 5 in the biggest size, 4 in medium, and 3 in small to get the graduated look. Then, simply pick up a dab of glue on a toothpick, dip the gem back in it, and attach to the center of the feather. Repeat, evenly spacing all your gems till you reach the bottom.
Step 3: Wait about an hour or until they are dry. Attach your ear wires and you are finished!
