...they're somehow related to things I made in the last few days. Sorry about the crappy action shots, I always feel like such a goober when I try to model things.

These were records that came with a vintage Japanese doll. I turned them into earrings:



These beads are from a Buddhist monk necklace thing (I'm sure they have a real name), but the strand broke and I lost a bunch of the beads, so I made them earrings also:



I love earrings Smiley

those are Buddhist prayer beads. Smiley I have a prayer bracelet I got from my Popo (chinese grandma) and they are supposed to bring me luck if I wear them everyday.  I hope your earrings bring you good luck and good fortune everytime you wear them!  I always love what you do, your so talented!
