DIY Idea: Refined Studs

Lately I’ve been seeing a softer, gentler stud, paired with bright candy colors for spring. For a refined look, you could add gold pyramid studs or smaller, rounded studs to a pastel-colored purse or pair of shoes. Combined with the Easter-egg colors, studs take on an unexpected elegance, don’t you think?

In the past I’ve purchased studs from studsandspikes.com, and if you need more inspiration, check out this studded trenchcoat from studs and pearls, and this studded pouch and studded wrap bracelet from Dismount Creative. I also did a couple of projects with studs–check out my leather studded bangle tutorial and my studded Converse.
