1  Re:Barbie Shoes bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by flyhunnie7 on: January 27, 2004 03:01:50 PM
My  tomboy daughter ripped the limbs off  one of her Barbies.  I tried to reattach them, but the joints were completely stripped.  So, instead of just throwing the mutilated Barbie in the trash, I decided to make some severed arm earrings...  they're sort of like plastic  milagros.

Using an exacto knife, I cut the arms off at the elbows.  I used a big sharp needle to poke some holes in the stumps and then I stuck eyepins into the tiny holes with the help of a pair of needlenose pliers.  I attached a jumpring to each eyepin before adding the fishhook earring findings so the arms swing around when you wear  them.  They need a little rhinestone ring or a tiny beaded bracelet or maybe even a tattoo on the upper part of the arm.  I think I'm going to make another pair of earrings with the legs.  My husband suggested I make little garter belts to go around the thighs...

omg, when i was a kid, i was a tomboy too!! i used to chop up my barbie dolls too, or draw all over them and crazy stuff like that. thats so freaking awesome! kudos to ur kid!
