Taking some inspiration from the various jewelry people have made from caffeine and chocolate molecules and this post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=161423.msg1629892#msg1629892, I decided to make these earrings for my mom's "lab week." She works in a lab in a hospital and every year they have lab week to honor the work they do. And, they have daily raffles with stuff brought in by the people in the lab. Anyone can bring in whatever they want. I wanted to make something for her to take that would be science-y.  

They are all one piece of wire, weaving in and out of beads.

pictures are with and without flash. i couldn't decide which picture looked better. oh and i also had to put in a short explanation in case people were like what is this!??! or mom said they might think its a funky snowflake

also i had to add a caveat that its just slightly fragile, hahaha. i dont think the wire can take a lot of bending and twisting, but otherwise its pretty sturdy Smiley

C&C welcome!

These are awesome!  Would they maybe be less fragile if you used a thicker gauge wire?

Eco-friendly items, patterns, hippies, and more.

I'm on Ravelry, too!

Those are so cool!

I've heard it both ways.

I'm looking to swap some knit &/or crocheted crafts for handmade CP/HP soap.
