i hope this is being posted in the right spot. im telling you i debated on a few areas, but i like here.  Grin

anyways, on with the show! i made these up last night, on a whim, after a trip to dollarama. i saw the chopsticks and thought 'hmm.. what to make as a gift for someone who has everything, likes nothing, but has a beautiful head of hair?? HAIR STICKS!!" who doesnt love hair sticks? plus, she'll wear a pencil in her hair, which means she's pretty likely to wear these. Tongue

(please excuse my crap pics, as my camera seems to be on its last legs. it wont focus at all, so all pics are blurry. Sad)

this is all three together, red wire with gold beads and butterfly charms. silver wire with big blue beads. bla ck wire with gold sead beads and turquoise e beads. the pictures do not do any of them justice, but the black one the least. IRL its so pretty. i hate my camera.

couple of close ups...

thanks for lookin'! i welcome your criticism.  Cheesy

these are very pretty and a good idea too. I may have to steal this idea for my sister if you don't mind.  Smiley

How is the wire attached? Did you drill a little hole, or does the wire just stay on?  Hmmm, I think I have some "jewelry glue"... I'm gonna try them tonight!  Thanks for the inspiration, they are pretty!

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.

i drilled a hole straight through the chopstick [after sawing the chopstick to size, since i thought they were a little bit too long, even for my friend's crazy amount of hair], then threaded the wire through there.. for the red one i also drilled a hole in the tip, straight down. then i superglued a eye pin in there so i could attach a charm. i wasnt sure if it would work, but it did! i think theyre my favourite pair.
