I think these earrings look too too cheap! I wouldn't wear them because they look just like what they are!

TRUE CRAFTING!! Using what you already have, to create new enjoyment in what you already use! There are several different options if you want to add to this little cutie. For example, various colors of seed beads or E-beads can be added to the top wire, or the wire itself can be easily replaced by a leather or suede cord. So many western designs have the probability for beauty on an idea like this. What an awesome spark to get the creative fires going! Nice job.

awesome who woulda thought. brilliant idea. At first I thought it was seed beads. good going. keep up the original ideas

they are so beautiful will do it, God Bless you

This is an AWESOME idea. Must do this!

very different, neat idea

So beasty clever. thanks.

If you don't have wire, I wonder if you couldn't use a paperclip instead?

Paper clips tend to be a little stiffer than most jewelry wire, but if you have a good set of jewelry pliers, you can manipulate the clip into the correct shape without too much trouble.

OMG. Brilliant! Doing this TODAY!!!

Neat Idea

A great gift for your hairdresser!!

Very clever, I used to do beadwork, but now my fingers don't want to work, so this is a very simple, but pretty craft.

My childhood bobby pin earrings were never this cute!! I just clipped two bobby pins together and clipped one onto my ear. I like these!!!
