thank you everyone for your positive feedback.
as asked for here's some directions. hope they make enough sense!! lol ...
1.) okay. so you'll need some things. shown below is everything i used. super glue or some other glue that sticks to slick surfaces would probably work just fine if you don't have jewelery glue handy. you'll also need Legos, but those aren't pictured b/c i thought that was pretty obvious. i say a few safety pins b/c the ones i had got melted and bent funny after i used them once or twice and it usually takes a couple of stabs to get the hole in the Lego right.
2.) i don't have a picture for this next step, but it's fairly straightforward. open the safety pin and bend it out a little. stick it in the fire (i don't recommend using a candle, it makes the hole black and sooty) until it gets nice and hot. stab it through the Lego until you hit the bottom of the little tube thing that connects various Legos if you are actually using them properly. do this a couple of times until the hole is large enough to stick the headpin inside.
3.) put the headpin into the hole you made and shove some glue in various places so it won't fall out as shown below. there's no real method to this, just put glue wherever you think necessary.
4.) i don't have a picture for this step either b/c it's so easy. snip the head pin with your wire cutters so you have just enough to make a loop. use your needle nose pliers to bend it into a circle and (you don't have to do this, but i did) use the crimper thingy to make the loop more round.
5.) open up an earring hook, put your Lego on it, close it up, repeat for second dangle and voila! you have Lego earrings.
