Basic DIY Statement Jewelry: Earphone Earrings

Punk style is making its waves into stores and blogs so I thought it would be cool to ride it  with a unique DIY.  If you followed the MET’s punk-themed gala this year [where Madonna stole the show in Givenchy], it’s no surprise that punk could be big this F/W.  This DIY will help in making use of some broken earphones while lending something unique to different outfits whether you are into punk or not. Let’s have broken earphones be our new cool/quirky/punkish jewelry statement.

This DIY will not cost you any $$.  If you have earrings that you don’t wear, just reuse the hooks.
