Did anyone else make those toy lizards out of pony beads and shoelaces in summer camp? It occured to me that you could make tiny ones out of seed beads and wire that would be just the right size for earrings.

Woo! Then I made a matching bracelet...

And then some more abstract earrings using the same method.

I made a ton of these to sell at my friends' charity thrift sale. I'll do a tutorial if anyone asks.

Never thought to make earrings. That's a good idea. I've made a lot of ornaments for people out of those. Creating designs for xmas with colorful beads in the shapes of snowflakes and xmas trees and santa.

Cute idea though I really like it.
