Raise your hand if you love everything Anthropologie! We think it鈥檚 safe to say that about 71 hands went up here at Brit HQ (35 women + Brit + Co office dog Miss聽Brie, of course). We constantly troll their site going ga-ga over EVERYTHING. Our creative director Anj brought these amazing earrings to my attention and we knew that an inspired pair was going to happen. Now these earrings are GORGEOUS (thank you, Elizabeth Cole) but if you don鈥檛 have $338 to drop we recommend DIYing a similar style! We made our pair for under $20 鈥 hit up your local beading store to find the best flat-back gems and decorative gold findings and you鈥檙e 20 bucks away from a sweet new accessory.

When searching through the bead store we looked for pieces that form a similar shape to the Anthro earrings. Don鈥檛 be nervous to buy multiple pieces to create this earring base.
