I love Anthropologie - the store designs and overall aesthetic of the buyers. I don't love the non-sale prices. And I don't love the political leanings of the man atop the brand (which includes Free People and Urban Outfitters). I own clearance items purchased with gift cards. More than anything, I get a kick out of "athro-hacking" or "anthro-morphing", if you will. If I can be inspired by (i.e. steal) their ideas and make it myself (or anthro-morph something thrifted), I will.
So here's my most recent morph, based on lots of leaf earrings I saw in store a couple of weeks ago. I liked the idea of white (I don't wear gold) ... and I loved the beads down the center of the leaf. Here's my version ... instructions below.
Anthro-morphed Earrings - DIY
I found huge leaf pendant earrings at a thrift store a few years ago. Most of the leaves were tarnished, but I salvaged a couple and I wear them as simple silver leaf earrings. Since I have lots more leaves to play with, I grabbed a can of white spray paint and went to town on two of them.
Spray painting something small like this is fiddly and requires more patience than I really have. They needed several coats.
