Beech Nut Earrings

I love beech nuts. To look at, to eat, everything. The only thing better is the tree itself. So why not use two of my favourite materials to make a pair of earrings?
A piece of copper wire stretches underneath the segments and holds the top in place, so they’re pretty secure.
I love making things out of natural findings. I was trying to make something similar with a hazelnut shell but it didn’t work :/ ah well.

Easiest earring upcycling ever!

Basically, you get an old flat stud earring, twirl a spiral out of copper wire, and hot glue it on!

Because I am prone to ear piercing infections even through sterling silver earrings, I stuck these on to plastic posted earrings which are really hypoallergenic and every time my ears get sore I just pop these in and within days they get better again.

Swirled wire earrings

Pretty similar to the ones I made ages ago, but with thicker wire and a shorter stem.
So, it’s a bank holiday today. Usually I would be happy to miss a day of school. But a Monday? I love Mondays! No Irish, double art, it’s just the best. But I have to have a Tuesday. Not good. I have an Ancient Greek exam which I have not studied for, and loads of Irish class. And I can not, for the life of me, do Irish. I got 37% on it 😦 It was, as my math teacher would say, an outlier in my results that brought my average down a lot. And I can’t get an exemption either. So six (or five :() more years left of failing on of my exams every time.
