Chevron Earrings

So it was nearly a month ago that I 'pinned' Jen from Craft-O-Maniac's chevron earrings for me to recreate... sadly revision and uni work got in the way too often so it's taken ages to get my pair finished.. a bit of taping out here and there, odd coat of paint, touch up, gloss and reassemble... but now my exams are over (ok so there's still a little bit of project work and an assignment to do) I have some of my free time back again, hurrah!!!!

Here's my finished pair of chevron earrings....
Seeing as I don't have a silhouette I had to use masking tape to create my chevrons so mine are pointed unlike Jen's wavy shaped chevrons... I'd love to say the centre black strip is deliberately wider but I didn't notice till after I'd finished painting, but hey at least both earrings have chunky black middles.. think I'll just pretend that's how I planned them to look lol!

Very cute! You don't have to tell anyone that the thicker one wasn't on purpose. You could just say it was a design choice. They look great. :-)

I was going to say that I love the wider black strip in the middle what a great idea, lol. Guess your craftyness is coming out even when you don't realize it! =) thanks for linking up to Make it for Less Mondays @ Simply Cadence!

Love them! I especially like how the stripes are not all perfect, makes them more visually interesting (my opinion). Great job :) have to admit I wish I had some too ~~ diane at home sweet homemade
