I had a really hard time getting motivated to sew today. It just wasn’t happening for me. So I decided to try and make some earrings with the supplies I got during the last sale at Michael’s. I have made wire earrings with my friend Melissa before, but I think they turned out better then because she had such an awesome assortment of beads. Anyways, I feel like these are respectable.
I used sterling silver ear hooks, some wooden beads, and the wire I had on hand from the previously posted jewel case project.
My original thought behind these was that the blue beads would go nicely with the hat I made my sister. Then I realized the slouchy hat isn’t all that conducive to wearing dangly earrings, but I know she really likes purple too so hopefully she’ll like them anyways! These took me all of about 6 minutes, and they’re fun to make. I was going to make more but my finger injury made working with the wire sort of painful, so I switched back to crocheting- next up, the dino baby beanie I finished today! I’m trying not to make my blog too crochet project heavy but it’s just so awesome for multitasking and starting/stopping whenever you want that I just can’t help myself.
