DIY – Smyks earrings!

Hi everyone! I am super excited about this post, because today I am showing you how to make the most amazing earrings! I haven’t done a DIY in so long, and I have just missed it so much! The post is in collaboration with Smyks, who kindly sponsored all of the items that I needed. If you want to make your own pair of earrings or any other piece of jewely, you can find everything you need to get started at Smyks.dk (they ship wordwide!) or you can visit their shop on Isafjordsgade 3 in Copenhagen. But enough chit-chatting, let’s get started!

Items I have used:
-Kreol earrings in silver 25mm
-Silver thread 0,4mm (30cm)
-Figaro chain 4mm (20cm)
-Granat pearl 2mm and 3mm
-Spinel pearl 2mm
-Black agat 3mm
-Needle-nose pliers
-Cutting tool

 1: Start out by laying out the design of the earring. I chose some pearls in fall colors and different sizes plus a few small chains.

2: Wrap the thread around the earring and clam around it to make sure it won’t move. Now you can begin to add some pearls. I added one pearl at a time, wrapping the tread around the earring in between each pearl.

3: Add a chain (or several) just as you would add the pearls.

4: When you are done adding the pearls and chains, just wrap the thread around the earring an clam together just like in the beginning. And viola, you’re done!

I think they turned out so well, and they were actually super easy to make. I will definitely visit Smyks again soon!

August highlights!

Kalenderen viser september, og det betyder, at det officielt er efterår! Det er absolut min yndlingsårstid, og jeg glæder mig til at vise jer en masse lækre efterårsoutfits! Inden da får I dog lige et indblik i, hvad jeg har lavet i årets sidste sommermåned. Månedens (eller årets) højdepunkt var et bryllup min kæreste og jeg var til i slutningen af august. Jeg elsker bryllupper, og det her var bare så smukt, og vi havde det så sjovt! Hvad har du lavet i august? 🙂

English: The calender says it’s September, which means that it is finally fall! Fall is definitely my favorite season, and I can’t wait to show you all of my nice fall outfits! But before I do that, I want to show you what I’ve been up to in August. The highlight of the month (or the year) was a wedding my boyfriend and I went to at the end of August. I love weddings, and this one was so beautiful, and we had such a good time! What have you been up to in August? 🙂

Min søde lillesøster er i lære som frisør, og det kommer ofte mig til gode! 😉 // My lovely sister is training to be a hairdresser, which I like to take advantage of! 😉

Til brylluppet havde vi desværre ikke tid til at tage outfitbilleder med mit kamera, så det her er alt i får. Jeg havde glædet mig så meget til at hoppe i denne kjole, og jeg følte mig som en prinsesse i den! // Unfortunaltely we didn’t have the time to take outfit photos at the wedding, so this is all you get. I was so excited to wear this dress, and I felt like a princess in it!

Brylluppet blev holdt på Munkebo Kro, og bordene var pyntet så fint! // The wedding took place at Munkebo Kro, and the table setting was gorgeous!

Maden til brylluppet var simpelthen så lækker, og selvfølgelig var jeg mest begejstret for desserten! // The food at the wedding was delicious, and of course I liked the dessert best!

Jeg tilbragte en af de sidste sommeraftener på Rossopomodoro i godt selskab og med god mad! // I spend one of the last summer nights at Rossopomodoro in good company and with amazing food!
