yay for arts & crafts!

i bought my sister a cool pair of earrings for her bday, and while shopping for them, i got some ideas for making my own. i can't wear anything even slightly heavy on my ears, but i've learned that there are some cool, featherweight earrings out there... and if you are making your own, the possibilities are endless!

i got dressed today and put on a turquoise/silver belt (just about the only clothing/accessory that i acquired from my mother's terrible closet) and thought, hmmmm it's been a while since i've made any jewelry......

20 minutes later i had these:

hanging proudly!

these take about 3 minutes to make and probably cost roughly $3-4 (the hooks are silver). the similar ones i saw in the store were $18!

out to lunch with the sis.


  1. Hi; I just found your blog and I really enjoy it. I have struggled with disordered eating in the past. I think it's great that you have the courage to share all your thoughts.

  2. Wow, those are beautiful! I make earrings too - it's so fun and relaxing.
