DIY Dolce & Gabbana Pasta Earrings
Leave it to Dolce & Gabbana to express their huge appetite for life (and Italy) with their Spring 2012 Collection. Dresses printed with eggplants, tomatoes and hot peppers sauntered down the runway, Sophia Loren was heard singing the ever-so-cliché ”Mambo Italiano” and . . . WTF?! Pasta earrings and accessories!? What a molto bene DIY! With just a quick trip to the supermarket and bead store, these kitschy but totally fun pasta earrings are a cinch to make. You’ll need: The first step is to drill holes into the pasta. Start assembling from the top by adding 3 jump rings to the bottom of the first charm. Thread the pin through the top of the pasta. To create a wire wrapped loop, cinch the pliers at the base of the bead. Using wire cutters, trim away any extra wire. Connect the charms in any pattern or sequence using jump rings. An optional step is to glue little black beads to the middle of the charms. Repeat the steps for the 2nd earring and your pair is finished!
