So i totally super-glued my fingers together while making this.

In reality, It's really sparkly and pops out more. It's actually rather large, like 3.5 inches across...but my hair kind of dwarfs it a bit...

Right, so this lovely was made out of rhinestones, all different shapes and colors. I just covered a metal barrette with them, and BAM! new device to try to control the hair. Working with superglue-covered objects by hand really wasn't a great idea though, my fingers were covered with rough patches from the dried glue for a couple of days after.

Blogger Revival

A few pairs of earring i made for jess. Happy 15th!

1st pair: lots of little blue beads, each one on an individual head pin, which then had to be hooked onto some chain. wayyy too much time, but very pretty.

2nd pair: The pictures really don't do the crystal drops justice. I have to say they're my favorite pair. Also the easiest to make

3rd pair: shiny blue shell buttons. Need i say more?

All three pairs were made with sterling silver ear wires.

oh, and kudos to Sam, who reminded me i had this thing.
