Today, i wanted to show you a particularly crazy yet awesome DIY (via one of the most inspiring blog i know Aka Honnestly WTF)

*Uniquement en anglais, désolée! Mais come on, y a juste à suivre les images et c'est facile comme tout  ;)

Leave it to Dolce & Gabbana to express their huge appetite for life (and Italy) with their Spring 2012 Collection. Dresses printed with eggplants, tomatoes and hot peppers sauntered down the runway, Sophia Loren was heard singing the ever-so-cliché ”Mambo Italiano” and . . . WTF?! Pasta earrings and accessories!?
What a molto bene DIY!
With just a quick trip to the supermarket and bead store, these kitschy but totally fun pasta earrings are a cinch to make.

You’ll need:

several pieces of bow-tie (farfalla) pasta
a pair of


Personnally, i don't think that i'm going to try this one (I'm not a happy crafter, sorry)
But if you do, send me the pictures! I would love to see them!
The first step is to drill holes into the pasta. Gently drill a hole into the two bottom tips of the bow-tie. Don’t worry if some chip – you’ll have a whole box to work with! After the edges are drilled, drill a hole through the center of the bow-tie. Make a few extra pieces of pasta in case any break during assembly.

Start assembling from the top by adding 3 jump rings to the bottom of the first charm. Attach an eye pin.

Thread the pin through the top of the pasta. Slide a bead onto the pin.

To create a wire wrapped loop, cinch the pliers at the base of the bead. Make a 90° bend in the wire to the left. Then wrap the wire around the right side of the pliers to create a loop. Pull the pliers out, pinch the loop, and tightly wind the wire clockwise around the base of the loop one or two times.

Using wire cutters, trim away any extra wire. There are now three places to attach charms.

Connect the charms in any pattern or sequence using jump rings.

An optional step is to glue little black beads to the middle of the charms. Glue the flat post to the backside of the top of the earring.

Repeat the steps for the 2nd earring and your pair is finished! Fun, right?

flat earring posts or earwires
1.5″ eye pins
brass charms
a few
black beads
jump rings
a 5/64″ drill bit

Good luck with your creation, and if you try it, send pictures!!! 
Bonne chance si vous le tentez et surtout envoyez moi des photos!
