Ever since I got into making jewelry, kundan stones have caught my attention. Firstly, I made these beautiful silk thread bangles which became a huge hit. Now I decided to make studs with these kundan stones. Generally in India, these stones are used for making quite heavy jewelry, like the earrings and necklaces have a large amount of bigger stones making them a bit heavy. I wanted to design something that’s light and can be worn daily with simple outfits. These are easy to make and can be done in just a few minutes. All you need is to give it time to stick. Maybe an hour or two. I let it dry overnight because I didn’t want anything popping out when I wear them. So just to be safe, overnight drying is a good option.
A small piece of thick cloth
Square kundan stones
Round kundan stones
How to do:
Assemble all the materials needed.
Apply glue on the cloth. I used fevicryl fabric glue. I use them for almost everything. They are strong and do not mess up my hands while working with them. Stick the kundan stones in whichever shape you require. I made it in the shape of a round flower and a square.
Let it dry.
Cut the excess cloth around the kundan stones with a sharp and small scissors.
Apply glue on the back and place the earring flatbacks.
Allow to dry overnight.
These earrings make a statement through their elegant look and easy design.
