E is for Earrings

I joined a 1980's swap on flickr. I thought it was a general craft swap, but it turns out it is a sewing swap. Having had already bought the materials to make some 80's earrings, I decided go ahead and make them anyway.

They will be included in my package as a bonus for my swap partner. I loved the way they turned out! They were relatively easy to make, aside from jamming the bead reamer halfway under my fingernail, ouch!

  1. Hi! Just found you from AtoZ. Your A and B posts are precious!

    On C...wish I hadn't seen that bag of Doritos. They're my favorites and now I'm craving. LOL

    I've made my own jewelry but only back in school, Scouts, etc. Nothing fancy, beads on elastic, but I love the bling.

    Good luck with your AtoZ!

  2. Nope I never have. Too fond of the real stuff.

    I have commented on your hyperlink in my response to your comment. You don't need the www and where the last a is between <> you should put a forward slash before the a.
