There is a story behind these earrings: A tree outside our house was struck by lightning and the electricity fried our DVD player, which had a DVD in it. I took it apart to get the DVD out, and made these earrings from the innards.
I really like these ones. Superglue + materials from Michael's (the craft store) make for simple, durable earrings like these.
Pencil sharpeners (not much skill needed to make these, i'm afraid)
These pieces of an (ugly) necklace look like they were meant to be earrings.
Circuit Boards (again)
Another pair of circuit board earrings. The others have a lot of exposed lead solder, so I made these because they look safer. Sadly, they are rather sharp edges and poke me!
Underwire from a Bra
These are the best. They are underwire's from a bra, twisted at the end and painted with a peachy nail polish. Sadly one of them got stepped on once and isn't doing quite as well as the other.
From Frappichino lids. The edges are painted with clear nail polish so that they cannot cut my neck.
Penguins with Earmuffs
Clay (Sculpy?) penguins with earmuffs.
Very simple to make, although rather silly.
These are some of my favorites. They are random plastic bits from the Scrap Exchange which are lots of fun to wear.
From the Duke TIP program's puzzle cube.
Trolls. How odd. I've hardly ever worn these.
Plastic cars — cute, but I hardly ever wear these either.
These binder clip earrings are cute, and I like them a lot.
These are from a necklace. They are really long, and would be great on someone with long, straight hair.
More Necklace Parts
One of these still has the clasp, which makes it look nifty (although perhaps a bit emo).
Bread Bag Tabs
One of these broke — but they were fun to wear and would be quite easy to fix.
