Baby got HFMD last week. 😦 She was miserable, and I quarantined her to the house. No family reunion for us, which meant a little time for crafting.

I’ve always had a hard time finding cute red earrings. So I wanted to make some. My wardrobe consists of a lot of purple, because of my day job, so I wanted some of that too.

I started by staining some balsa-wood I cut down to earring size.

Then I cut pieces of soda cans.


Then glued cans to wood, and covered in epoxy.



Let them sit for a few days, punched holes through the metal, and added earring hooks.
