Showing some geek love. XD

I found the dice at my local gaming store and knew just what to do with them. They are mini d8, only half an inch tall. There were only 4 mini die and these were the only ones that matched. Darn the luck. lol I know they're really plain but these are the first earrings I've made so I'm still happy with them. ^.^ I drilled completely through both and stuck some jewelry wire through. (one had to be drilled through twice, I guess it had some plastic still stuck in it) The top of the wire was stuck through the eye of the earring and looped back into the die. I was going to do the same to the bottom but the wire didn't want to cooperate so they were just pushed as flat as possible back up against the die. ^.^' heh I may go back and try to fix it later but for now I'm ok with the minor issue. :p
(I'll take better pics tomorrow)



EDIT~
I did go back and change the bottom of the wire to how I wanted it. I must say, it looks much better than it did when it was just fish-hooked on. :p Had to take a bunch of new pics because they kept coming out blurred or super glarry. >.<'
And for future viewing pleasure, the pics of my effort:
