I bet this happens to everyone, you buy a nice pair of earrings and one day, when your dancing or in a hurry, you lose one. Well here’s a solution I have, to make the cherished loner into a ring.
A friend of mine did this a couple of years back with a lonely gold earring. She actually went to the jewellers supplied a gold ring and the lonely gold earring and he stuck them together, it looks awesome and cost her 20 bucks! Mine, is more of a costume jewellery solution, obviously, but still a wonderful idea if you want to keep on wearing something beautiful.
For the task I used a clip on earring and kept the back on, but it’s definitely possible to do the same thing with a stud, you just need to cut off the back.
The how to – DIY ring
1. You will need: Jewellery or metal glue, a lonesome earring and a ring, (now they’ll be together until death does them part.)
2. Depending on the back of the earring prepare the surface to later attach the ring. I had to keep the clip-on post because the earring was very deep-set.
3. Put the jewellery glue on the ring and the earring.
4. Squeeze together the earring and the ring for 1 minute and leave to dry for 24 hours.
And voilà! A recycled earring has a new life and an opportunity to shine again!
What do you think?
Back in Paris now and thought I’d do something classic with this trench coat I received from She Inside this week! I’m loving the lace detail on the sleeve (the lining is like that too!) it looks great belted up or hanging coolly off shoulders. Trench coats are just a classic staple for spring, they are so versatile, next I need a black one!
Lovely Louise Chester from Imagined Adventures took these pics, we had a couple of drinks in the Marais yesterday afternoon. It’s starting to warm up a little and I’m rather enjoying the great outdoors.
Will be posting some more pictures from Toronto soon!

I’m back from Toronto now, I still have so many photos to share with you! We had so much fun, it was sad to go home! The Levis x Lookbook Party was a barrel of laughs. Everyone was personalizing their 501’s and their projects looked great, plus we ate such yummy finger food and sushi! This Saturday we went to see the Niagara falls with the gang. I was like a kid in a candy shop, plus we went to Wendy’s, I know it’s just another fast food restaurant, but I’ve never been there before, so I was so happy to try something I see on TV all the time!
I have had so much fun with Rachel over at Jag Lever, she’s the loveliest girl, I want to go and visit her in NYC!
