first time ever making earrings Cheesy

i suddenly had th urge to make earrings and didnt have any of those hooks and wires and beads and stuff. it was past midnight so i couldnt go out and buy any materials....so....... i used some wire that i bought a couple of months back for a design assignment, and cut up a bracelet (for the beads) an exchange student gave me lol (it was nice that she made it for me but i hated it). then i went to the tool box and took dad's wire cutter thing. i was also really lazy with searching on th internet (at past midnight) for instructions on how to make earrings etcetc... so thats why my earrings look so home made....

view of them lousy hooks LOL hanging on my cellphone charger cable....

my fingers really hurt after trying to twist the wire. it was kinda fun hehehe....

those are some good handmade hooks, especially for a first-timer!

The End.

hi congrats on first earings. A tip i might offer is to use a biro to shape your earing hooks over, i cut both pieces and bend at the same time and than curl up the end where the beads dangle from, that way you keep the pair the same everytime. I file a little on the end to go in to the ear lobe, in case it is jagged and sharp, i bought real cheap needle metal files from a cheap car part place. good luck, keep crafting... great work. cheers cyndi
