Cute? :)

Aside from cupcakes, I think that cherries and bows might be the cutest things that you can wear. Unless of course, your kitty is of the fat and cuddly variety :)

So why not combine them?

Instructions

  1. Step 1 1

    Start out with some gold wire. This is 20 gauge gold colored brass wire.
    Make bow-ish shapes out if it. I didn't actually tie bows like you do with your shoelaces, because this wire is a bit too thick to do nice knots with. So I made two loops and wrapped one of the legs around the center.

    I don't have a photo for this, but afterwards I took the longer leg and wrapped it around the center twice more to make it look neater. You can see the end result in the next photo:

  2. Step 2 2

    Then I took some polymer clay and made little "cherry" balls with them. I wanted to paint them later with red nail polish to give them a juicy look, so I just used up my white reject clay -- white clay that has little carpet fibers in it that I can't use for actual white projects.

  3. Step 3 3

    After baking the clay, I covered it with two coats of bright red nail polish and one coat of clear.




  4. Step 4 4

    Then, just use some hot glue and attach them to earring posts!
    Enjoy your luscious earrings ;)
