so my beautifyl headphones stopped working much to my dismay. and i didn't want to throw them away really so i thought how fun would it be to have headphone earrings? and tada i made em.

as headphones:

faraway thing as earrings:

in the ear:

closeup of the jump rings (i think they're called) and the earring at the bottom of the head phone:

ok first you should know that my headphones were squishy and bendable at the bud. now for the tut!!!! you'll need four jump rings and two earrings.

1. cut wire short and then remove speaker from bud. pull/cut wires off so taht it is only the speaker no wires. replace in bud.

2. take a pin poke through the lower part of the bud wear you want your first jump ring to go. move it around a bit so that the hole is bigger.

3. open the jump ring and put it through the hole. close it. take the other jump ring open it and put it through the first jump ring. then put on the earing so that the bud faces the direction you want it to. that is very important. close the ring and TA DA! new earing.

4. repeat one through three for the other earring.

i'd really be amazed if they were somehow wireless and functional...  you should write a letter to Apple and tell them you've got a new design for an ipod accessory.
