So I was at the Goodwill the other night, looking for trinkets and baubles that could potentially be turned into whimsical jewelry, and I stumbled upon a bag of 30 wine bottle corks for .99 cents. I also stumbled upon a genuine small, ornate, bronze hookah for $2.99, but that's going to be put to other uses... Wink

the earrings, with me wearing them!



one of the earrings, closer...



...annnd the other

lol, for a second I thought, "Hey, corks...those must be some fairly large gauges," but then I saw they were dangly earrings and was all, "Lolz, corks."

They're cute, though. Very original. Good job. n___n

I have a cork from a wine bottle that my dad put holes into. I think I'm going to use it as a pendant bead for a hemp necklace, but I'm not quite sure yet.

cute but aren't they a little heavy for your ears or are they really light

They sort of remind me of Luna Lovegood.  Grin Very unique, I like the idea.

Corks are extremely light, so I highly doubt they're heavy.
