Craft Attack

4 July 2010

It’s been so long since I last made something with my hands, and I felt that I just had to do something about it. I had the “need to bead,” as my crafty friend Chique put it. Besides, it’s been ages since my last craft blog post. So one morning I pulled out some beads and random materials and made some earrings.

Earrings are very simple to do, so I figured it’s a quick way to satisfy my crafty cravings. Despite how easy they are to make, I hardly make earrings. The thing about earrings is that I don’t use them. Correction: I can’t use them. My ears are very sensitive for some unknown reason and the only ones I can use are silver or gold ones. Still, I have to clean them before wearing and I have to be veeeery careful when putting them on otherwise my earlobes would get red and puffy and irritated.
