Star Power: My DIY Jem And The Hologram Inspired Crystal Star Button Earrings

Miss Kris Jem And The Holograms Crystal Star Earrings DIYLots of questions about the star earrings I was wearing in my blog change announcement post (here). Yep you guys guess it… I made them! I actually made them years ago long before I was really into blogging. I was shopping vintage and this lady was selling a bag of metal buttons. In the bag I discovered these two star buttons. Instantly they remided me of my childhood hero, Jem of Jem and the Holograms fame (y’all remember her, right?!) and her magical star earrings. I removed the shank from the back of the earring and used E6000 to apply an earring post, but before doing so I spend a few hours applying tiny crystals to the buttons because I’m sure that’s what Jem would have wanted me to do! These earrings have got to be one of my truly prized crafted possessions. Pictured above with a few of my other favorite things: the Emily yellow neon lucite clutch from Tess Handbags, Essie‘s “Find Me An Oasis” polish and Maybelline‘s Hibiscus Haven lipcolor.
