$2 for new earrings

After all the flattering comments about my legs recently, my ears were getting jealous, so here are some pictures of them that you can say nice things about too. Don’t say I’m not good to you all!
Actually, this is just a quick post as I’ve suddenly been blessed by the freelance fairy and despite having had no paid employment for a few months, now have several assignments (translations and otherwise) due in the next few days. So I really shouldn’t be mucking around showing off these new earrings!

Well, when I say “new”, most of you will know that I mean “from an op shop”. Yes, OK, they were from Savers and only cost $4.99. However I AM wearing them with a brand new bikini which was all of $15 from Kmart*. However, I didn’t think it necessary to put up photos of me wearing THAT.

I’ve also made myself some new earrings out of a pair of $1 clip ons and some wooden donutty parts from normal earrings that cost $1.

You’ve probably realised by now that I’m rather partial to massive earrings and to fiddling with them to make new ones. Similarly to other ones I’ve made, I simply wound some wire around the base of the clip part and passed it through the tiny ring in the top of the donuts. I tried to take a photo to show you how I did these ones but my camera just couldn’t capture the fine detail of the wire.

Anyway, you’re all intelligent people, I’m sure you can work it out! And now I think I hear the freelance fairy telling me that mucking around time is over, so it’s nose to the grindstone again for me…
