I often appreciate Burberry Prorsum collections and the one that just walked the runway is no exception.
There are so many details that renew the classic Burberry trench and make the collection young and fresh, like sheer pencil skirts or the heart pattern over neutral beige or the metallic details.
I really liked bags and coats decorated with eyelets and fringes and I immediately imagined that detail becoming a  fun pair of earrings.
So here's the DIY tutorial.

La collezione di Burberry Prorsum è giovane e fresca,  piena di spunti creativi come la trasparenza delle gonne, la stampa a cuoricini sui cappotti e i dettagli metallici che spiccano sui toni neutri.
Molto originale l'ampio uso degli occhielli come decorazione di capispalla ed accessori. Un particolare che mi ha colpito più degli altri adatto ad essere trasformato in un divertente paio di orecchini.
Continuate a leggere per vedere il tutorial.


You'll need:
  • 2 eyelets 2 cm wide
  • a scrap of leather
  • scissors
  • glue
  • earring nails and backs

  • 2 occhielli di 2 cm di diametro
  • un ritaglio di pelle
  • forbici
  • colla
  • chiodini per orecchini

Start by applying an eyelet on leather. There is a tool often sold with the eyelets.
Put leather between the top and the bottom part of the eyelet and press everything with the tool You may need to hammer it.

Applicate l'occhiello sulla pelle. Spesso troverete l'applicatore nella confezione d'acquisto.

Cut leather along the edge of the eyelet and then cut it straight down.

Tagliate la pelle lungo il bordo dell'occhiello.

Use scissors to fray the ends.
Glue e piece of leather behind the eyelet and trim the edge.

Sfrangiate la pelle con le forbici.
Incollate un pezzetto di pelle dietro l'occhiello e rifilate il bordo.

Glue an earring nail on the back and you've done. Have fun wearing your new pair of earrings!

Incollate il chiodino. Uscite con il vostro nuovo paio di orecchini!

It's really a great idea!!!
I don't like wearing big earrings but this item is useful, I can make a DIY bag, leather collar necklace with it.
Thnx for sharing:)))

I absolutely love these - black, gold, and modern! I tell my readers that one of the tools I own is an eyelet maker and I use it quite a bit. I've posted one finished photo and a link back to you on trueblue.
