Giveaway: Anthro-morphed leaf earrings...


Ok ... another jewelry giveaway for you! I was inspired by all the leafy earrings I saw in Anthropologie's spring collection and transformed some dull silver leaves from thrifted pendant earrings (Detailed post here). Like the negative earrings and pendant I gave away last week, these are carefully made and one-of-a-kind. I'm giving them away because... well, it's a fun thing to do.  :)

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment (please leave your name and/or email address so I can identify and contact the winner!). Not in the US? No problem - happy to ship out of the country.

Upcycle: Anthro-morphed leaf earrings...

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.

Anthropologie (NYC) window display ... using little plastic bags.  I wonder what they're growing? This would be finicky to replicate, but a great idea for a sunny window in a small space (Via Upcycle Us)
