I found packages of these cute (but fragile) shell things
and they already had holes in them.
I bought 2 packages so I'd have 2 of each color.
(They were .75 each thanks to my favorite store in the world... Hobby Lobby!)
Then I bought a few rings and the loop earrings. A set of needle nose pliers and a few minutes later
and look how cute these are!
(I actually got 9 pairs of earrings out of 15 minutes and less than $3.00)
Lots more jewelry to come!
I find a great deal of savings and satisfaction come from making it myself.
