A statement accessory can transform a simple outfit into something spectacular! This step by step tutorial will teach you how to make a beautiful pair of Antique, Golden Brass earrings.

With statement earrings remaining on trend throughout high street stores and designer catwalks, it’s safe to say we are at a time where ‘more is…more’. With celebs wearing the most extravagant earrings to turn heads on the red carpet, why not do the same in your own walk of life.
