hi!  here are some earrings I made recently, after buying my first pack of earring hooks!  woo hoo!

bells, clips, circles cut from an old Paste DVD with the plastic layer pulled off:


legos!  windows, shutters, and square pieces:


button earrings- the third ones are stop light themed!


Clocksworth, Lumiere, Mrs. Pots, and Chip!  I got these from an old charm bracelet:


Post earrings made from those buttons with the loop jutting from the back- I cut of the loops and glued on old earrings:


Finally, my favorites!  Tacks!  People tend to freak out when they see me wearing these but don't worry, I didn't actually stick the tack through my ear- I cut the metal part off with pliers and glued posts on.


Ya know those little fake-diamond earrings that come on the post?  where the rock is held to the post with the little metal fingers?  I found that if you bend the fingers back with pliers so that they're flat and the diamond comes out (think of the dead spiders in garfield), you're left with a great earring post that you can glue things to!  I don't know if that made sense, so tell me if it didn't Roll Eyes
Anyway, thanks for looking!  have a good day!

I love these. They are so cute and thrifty and wild!
The traffic light button earrings are ingenious. They are so cute and something that isn't too big or bulky yet it still attracts a bit of attention. But my favorite are the thumbtack earrings! And now while typing my eyes are scanning my desk looking for thumbtacks. (I have tons of crappy cubic zirconia earrings lying around and now they are going to be up-cycled for the greater good!)

i am full on in love with the tacks!  and the binder clips too!  I have been making earrings out of 'interesting' stuff, (according to the customers that stop by my booth) but i have never thought of using either of them...pure craft genius.

It seems that different people have an idea of what I am, and what I should be. And then there's me.
