Quick and Easy Birthday Gift

It had been a busy couple of days, so busy that I forgot one of my nieces birthday. As I was settling in to bed I noticed the alert on my phone - "Dana's Birthday". At about 3 in the morning, I got up and whipped up this little gift. [caption id="attachment_297" align="alignnone" width="303" caption="Crystal Earrings"][/caption] I had a difficult time photographing them, so I scanned them in - I hope you are able to see them. Anyway, here is what is involved. 2 6mm butterfly crystal, 2 4mm Faceted Cube Crystals, 4 4mm bicone crystals, 2 headpins and ear wires. String the beads on the head pin as shown above, make a loop at the top of the head pin, attach your ear wires and you are done - 5 minutes = cute earrings. I figured, since I was up, I would complete a few more projects. I went barrett crazy - thankfully, I had done these patterns before, so they went quickly. check them out...
