A Birthday Gift

I've been searching for earrings for my younger sisters upcoming birthday for a while now. I had a good idea of the type of earrings that I was looking for but just couldn't seem to find I decided to get out my jewellery supplies and make them!

The silver rings are actually washers. I asked Mr CurlyPops to drill holes in them (so I could attach the jump rings) and to bash them up a bit with a hammer. He doesn't like me playing with his tools because I don't put them away properly.

I then took some sandpaper and scratched them up and sanded the edges. Her favourite colour is purple so I attached a purple bead and some earring wires and 'voila' .....birthday gift completed.

I think I might make some for myself now.
