Joy at completing a project in less than 10 minutes.
Pride that you were able to complete said project for less than $3
Fulfillment from actually finishing a DIY project
So here's what you'll need: 2 tiny jumprings (mine were 4mm), some sort of pretty adornment to use as the actual decorative part of your earring (I used filagree as you can see), 2 earwires, and pliers
5 steps. How's that for easy? Aren't they pretty? And simple!
Perfect worn with a couple of chic and understated seed bead bracelets
And really, it takes me back to my teenage days. One of these days I'll have to show you my bead box that I've had since I was 14 and still use today. It has KROQ and Whittier High School stickers on it. It reminds me of my youth, of feeling giddy over making a simple friendship bracelet, of spending hours in my old room at mom and dad's house. Before the days of hustle and bustle and over analyzing, over critiquing all of my work and output. It just makes me happy I guess. And that's reason enough :)
Go to your local bead store and see what fun earring forms they have and create a special pair just for you or a friend. It's simple, it's easy, it won't break the bank and it's made with love. Enjoy :)
