DIY Emar Batalha Inspired Earrings

For the past week I have been watching my friends scramble to find the mothers in their family gifts for Mother’s Day. I am their go to person for gift ideas for whatever reason so I took it upon myself to gather a list of options before they came to me at the last minute. While on a hunt for possible ideas I came across Style.com’s post on Mother’s Day Gifts. I loved that everything about the post screamed femininity by playing on flowers and shades of pink/red. The ideas ranged from clothing, flowers, shoes, perfumes and candles.  Also on that list were a stunning pair of Emar Batalha earrings. I know plenty of mothers who would love to have those earrings.  However, the sound of a car skidding immediately played in my mind when I saw that they sell for $9,000.
