Earrings Become Necklaces
My awesome friend Jessica and I went to the citywide garage sale months ago, and there were some earrings I saw that I loved, but didn’t buy, since I’m trying to cut down on the amount of stuff I have. Jessica bought them for me, and we both promptly forgot about it. She found them again, and gave them to me, and I was super excited. That’s the benefit of having a friend with a goldfish brain: you can buy gifts in front of them and they will still be surprised.
So these are the earrings. They are clip-ons, and just crying out for Adam West Batman type words on them.
See what I mean? So that was my inspiration. First thing was pulling the flippy parts of the clip-ons off.
By just pinching at the base with some pliers, the flippy parts popped off easily.
I then bent that part back so the necklace wouldn’t stick out too far when I was wearing it.
This was also easily done with the pliers. I then just used shirt paint to write the words on the front.
I love how they came out. Once they were dry, I threaded a piece of wire through the two holes on the back to hang the necklace from. I didn’t take a picture because I forgot (goldfish brain, remember?). I wore one the other day, and I just love it. I want to spread nerd-dom far and wide!
At this moment, I am at the Community Renaissance Market for the Rockin’ Mama’s Day Celebration, a benefit for SafePlace. Come on by and help a great cause, and buy a bunch of jewelry from me so I don’t have to carry it back home.
