I have pretty sensitive ears and if I wear cheap jewelry overnight, my ears will itch like crazy and feel swollen. I wasn't always like this, it just started happening about a year ago. Oddly enough, my cheap nose ring has never given me any problems. So because of that and my lack of sterling silver earrings, I don't usually wear them. I'm kind of tired of never wearing them though and so I decided instead of spending 40+ dollars on a few pairs of sterling silver earrings, why not just make some? So after a very fun trip browsing the buttons/gems/charms aisle at Hobby Lobby, I found some great pieces to wear on my ears. So creative right? I'm like the first person to think of doing this..... ;)
Any-who, I made some pretties and thought I would share them with you all. I have to say, I think the pressed flower black earrings are my favorites by far. They were originally charms with a metal hole at the top but I lopped it right off with some wire cutters and they were good to go!
