Earrings of the Day 1/2/13

Well today's attempt at earrings were using the red dyed bamboo beads I picked up with my Michael's coupon.  I meant to go to Michael's on the 1st, but luckily, the  $5 off $25 coupon was still good for today.Of course I grabbed yarn, but I got a couple of essentials.  I could never have too many beads to work with.

The Shimmer yarn is fun!  I figured I would take advantage of the left over holiday colors they still have in stock.  Plus, I needed some jewelry glue. 

Now for the earrings.  They only took a couple of minutes and here are the results.

I decided to use the shell beads and some silver plated tiny beads to add to the small dangling earrings.

I didn't use this one shell bead because it was scratched up.  I started out with one silver plated bead, but I added a second one on the bottom.

Now it's time to finish my evening cup of coffee and subject Austin to Honey Boo Boo episodes on the DVR!
