Did you know "perler" is from the swedish "pärlor" and simply means "beads"? Grin 

It was this swedish macho-guy who invented them. He was sitting in his timberlog and was bored. Some-one suggested him to start knitting & sew xstiches, but he thought it was way to sissy. So he put a lot of nails on a piece of wood and decoraded it with beads beause "it was more male" <3 

Well, here is what I made myself:
A pair of dangly mismathing earrings and a barret.

handmade hooks in black

close-up of the earrings...

work in progress

I was inspired of my new socks in the beginning. I realised that  I had nothing to go with it, so I made some accesoaries. ^^

They almost look like they glow in the dark. How cool would that be?
