Well, after making a wallet, I had these two things. so, since my friend's b-day is coming soon... I made these earrings!


although I can't decide I like them or not, but most importantly, I'm not sure if SHE will like them or not  Undecided
(please be honest, just not too harsh Tongue)

They look well-made, but maybe kinda plain. maybe you could add some rhinestones or glitter to them? I'd be ALL over those babies if they were decked out in pink glitter, LOL

I dunno, i just like to glitter everything LOL. They are pretty cute the way they are, but if you wanted to glue something on I'd use that E6000 glue stuff.. or maybe just super glue

Well, after thinking it over, I think I won't put glitter, mostly since I just realized she's kinda emo. But thanks anyway Tongue (you just gave me some inspiration  Wink )

I like these as they are.

But you could also thread some thread  Wink through the little holes. Embroidery floss? Metalic thread? Skinny yarn?

They may also be more "artsy" if they're hung off-center. But as they are, they're classic, serious, wear-to-work earrings.

I really like them as is, but if you want to dress them up, I would say get some nail polish that has a pearlescent sheen or glitter in it. It will stay on better than regular glitter.

When I need to add sparkle to something, I use this 'sparkle glaze' I found at the craft store...it's just a satin glaze with a bit of pearlescent glitter in it. It works really well for most colors -- I used it on black microchips, and it looks fabulous. They shelve it with all the craft paints in little bottles, and it's really cheap.
