If we’ve got one tip to offer up for your Fall accessory collection…make sure it ROCKS. Chanel had an all-out crystal ball with its Fall collection, as Karl Lagerfeld decked heels, cuffs, hems and even eyebrows with brilliant moonstones & rocky gems.  Fuse abstract amethyst, moody-hued quartz and shimmering fluorite to create a bold yet (literally) precious D.I.Y. hair accessory for a look that packs the power of Kryptonite both day and night.

To create:  Cut a rectangular piece of leather (or leather-like) fabric to the approximate size of your barrette. Glue the backside of the fabric piece to your barrette with extra-strength glue – we used E6000. To avoid excess glue and drips, use a craft stick. Finish by embellishing with an array of quartz and crystals. Let dry completely, then style for an instant eye-catcher.
