Jewelry Tech

I’m doing crafty activities again. One of the activities I’ve started is making earrings. There is a fantastic store called Yum Yum Beads, in Leeds where I live, which I love. It is a complete cornucopia of all things dangly. One of the things I wanted to do was make a pair of earrings which reflected my inner nerd so I have made a pair of Magic: The Gathering D20 earrings.

One of my D20 earrings

They are made very simply by taking a pair of the giant spiral containers, which are usually intended for holding semi precious (or otherwise) stones, and a pair of earwires. I simply slipped the wires on to the spirals and closed the end off with a touch of solder.

The great thing is that the D20s are removable and so can still be used 😀
