My new earrings...

Anyway, these earrings are made like most other earrings.
1. Cut a piece of tiger tail wire to the length you want the earrings.
2. Loop the wire through the clasp in the back of the pin. You can also take out the clasp in the back if you'd rather make a hole in the pin.
3. Tie a knot with the wire on the pin.
4. Tie the pin/wire to the earring....I used one of the fish hook ones.
5. Ta-dah! You have gorgeous earrings now!

the pins are from a jewelry store called helzberg diamonds, or if you go to www.iamloved.org, you can order them (in many different languages) for free, including free shipping. it is a mail-in order, but it's still pretty cool.

for attaching the wire, i actually didn't make a hole. it may be easier to just make a hole, but i just left the actual pin in the back of the pin and tied the wire through the clasp.

you just thread the wire through that little loop the arrow is pointing to. sorry if that isn't clear. hope this helps!
