Flaunt D.I.Y: Gold Earlace

Its been a while now that I've created any jewelry by hand & lately I've been amazed by the concept of an "earlace" (earring+necklace). So not too long ago Rihanna was out flaunting an earlace by designer Dechel McKillion. I've actually worked with Dechel through Live! On Sunset and she's such a sweet girl & great stylist. I now do visual merchandising for the boutique so I don't get to see her as often. Anyway, I got inspired and based on my funds lol, I decided to make my own!

It's actually quite simple to create, you just have to keep in mind the length & direction of each chain once put together. I purposely made mine longer because I prefer the look. Although it looks hazardous it's not, just as long as you're not clumsy.

Here I wore it with a yellow silk vintage tank, bleach/destroyed denim, and platform suede beige heels. I love how the gold complements the yellow/mustard tones in the tank. Perfect for summer and definitely an attention grabber!

stay Fierce, be Fearless, & Flaunt got it!


  1. I would Looooovvvveee to see how you did this I also loved the idea of the earlace when I saw it.

  2. I noticed in the jewelry diy u don't ever teach how to do it, could u show how u made this?
