Enter these earrings:
It's funny, because in this picture, they don't look so bad - I like that color yellow. But in reality, the jewel was NEON yellow, not Big Bird yellow. Neon yellow isn't really my speed anymore... but I had seen these earrings on the Young House Love blog before (they're apparently a Sherry favorite):

...but with a $1.40 price tag. I can make a $1.40 work. Here's what the back looked like... they actually look and feel like a high quality earring (and you can see they are more neon in this picture):
I knocked out the jewel part...
which was easy to do... it was only being held in two spots on the sides. Easy!
I grabbed my Rust-oleum Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint, and gave the jewels two light coats so they wouldn't drip.
Ironically, used the Shopko ad to catch the paint...
Looking good! I had to make sure to let them dry for a while as plastic doesn't absorb the paint at all.
I used hot glue to put the jewel back in, but will use Krazy Glue gel formula to really secure the jewel when I get some more :)
Pushed the jewel back in with a hint of glue, and they came out gorgeous! Much more my "speed", and a pretty color for fall! They remind me of these ones by Kendra Scott as well!
