I saw this pretty ear thing at Hot Topic and wanted it sooo bad, but not the $12 price tag. I thought for sure I could recreate it and maybe even make it better.
pliers (I just used tweezers with scissor handles)
and a variety of chains
I also used old necklaces I don't wear anymore
I found most of these items at walmart for a $1
Start by making a tight spiral at the end of the wire
Then about 2 inches down make a loop.
Then start wrapping the wire around itself above the loop towards the spiral
and wrapping and wrapping until you reach the top and snip the wire and try to tuck it under the spiral so it won't get caught in your hair.
Gather a variety of chains in different lengths
Bend your wire thing so that it comfortably fits behind your ear
Decide what chains you want where, gather them on jump rings and attach them to the loop and spiral.
I've already made 6 or 7. It's a fun little project :-)
What do you think? If you decide to make one email me a picture, I'd love to see them.
I'm also extending my giveaway another week seeing as how no one has entered it. :-p
So a winner will be announced Friday, September 23th. I mean, unless no one STILL hasn't entered.
