With the last movie of the Twilight Saga opening in just a few weeks I really wanted to dig into my blog and re-make this Twilight earring tutorial I did a few years back. Through the blogger to WordPress migration the post and pics got all askew. I didn’t want it to get lost somewhere in cyberspace never to be seen again! So, here it’s, all fixed up and ready for love!
When Hurricane Ike slammed Houston and left us without power for fifteen days, my beautiful and incredibly sweet niece, Maranda, handed me her copy of Twilight. I think I have read the Twilight Saga in it’s entirety about 10 times since. Fast forward a few years. My friend Kayla recommended that I read The Black Dagger Brotherhood. I am in LOVE with the series. It’s Twilight for grown women! It’s that secret book series you never told anyone you read. Well, until now, with all the 50 Shades of Grey popularity. I can come out of the closet, now?! HA!
For the tutorial I used my Twilight earrings. I was inspired by the beautiful covers of each of the books in the Twilight Saga, and chose a deep red and black. I received a lot of great feedback for my previous tutorial on a pair of earrings I made. I decided I wanted to do a more in depth tutorial for y’all. So, here we go…
This is how it all begins. A pile of beads, some chain, pins, findings and jewelry tools. Yes, the earring findings really did end up in the shape of a heart. No, I didn’t place them that way…isn’t that quite sweet.
So….these are my romantic vampire earrings. Who doesn’t love a vampire!?! At least one that’s romantic, right?
