Guitar pick earrings are cute AND easy to make. Really.
The Basic Assembly:
*You can subsitute clip on posts for the hook-eye earring
The trickier part--besides trying to figure out the bead(s)/pick color combination--is assembling the bead(s) onto the wire. Since I've a Type-A/Perfectionist personality, the wire wrapping of the beads had to be just so. I got more information about the technique from a really cool and photo intensive jewelry making site.
I made a couple of tester pieces until I felt comfortable in assemblying the beads onto the wire. Then it was go go go from there...well, almost. Y had to make a stop at the Bead Source in Arcadia for some pretty beads (Buyer beware: too many colors!) and I had to find a small hand drill (for wood working) in order to create the holes in the picks. Once all the pieces have been assembled...
