i (finally) had my wisdom teeth taken out at the end of august, and was put on antibiotics to control the infection.

and i don't know if i forgot some, or if they gave me too many, but i ended up with a bunch of spare pills. and lying there in my doped-up chuipmunk-cheeked discomfort, i decided that the pills were quite pretty, and would make fantastic earrings.

but then when i was less doped up (still thinking they'd make fantastic earrings) i realised that the stuff they're made out of so they dissolve happily in your stomach would also dissolve not-so-happily all over your neck. so i ummed and ahhhed and googled, and found http://www.pillearrings.com/ and disovered that the secret was polyurethane varnish. magical.

sometime later, i actually found some. and made them. was the easiest thing ever. i emptied out the powder and threaded them onto headpins, putting beads in the middle to weight them down a bit. couple of coats of varnish, and bob's your uncle.

hmmm...  I don't have peirced ears, but I'm thinking that a motrin necklace would be neat, since that's always my drug of choice...  hmmm, and I wonder if my mom still kept the three year old xanax.   Cheesy

Oh my God, that's flippin' hysterical! Who ever would have thought that pills could be jewelry? Obviously a really good person...most excellent indeed.

I think I'll try this one out. that would make great christmas gifts, what will all the headaches shopping season brings....
thank you so much for sharing! You did a great job!

How silly..in the good way! Now I just thought of random things, pill bracelets, pill pins/brooches, pill ornaments (for the demented like me..teehee Cheesy) And...hmm...yep, that's all I can think of for now! Good job with your earrings!
