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.

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