I made some octopus earrings for a swap, and I am absolutely in love with making these now.



I used earring pins with a loop on the end, and strung beads onto thin pose-able wire for tentacles.  The head is one giant bead with two smaller ones hot-glued onto it.  I know there are only 6 tentacles, but they were starting to get a little heavy and I didn't want to damage anyone's ears.

If it lives in the water or flies in the air, I'm in love with it. In New Zealand I saw a flying fish and almost wet myself.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
