when i was making this i cut off the earbuds and discovered that the wires they use are sooo colorful. so i slid all of the wires out of the casings and am making a cool bracelet out of them. its like, extreme recycling.

That's cool. My mom keeps breaking hers. Maybe she knows about this project and is just waiting for me to make her earrings.

I just got new headphones and I'm definitely going to use them to do this. I am such a sucker for crazy earings!

Sounds much easier than digging up more of those crimps is proving to be. If you make them like that, please post a picture!

Jess: I suppose I should have called it a "jewelry crimp". If you ask to be shown some at your local craft store, you'll certainly see what I used. I'll fix it in the how-to right now. :

Thanks for the positive feedback everyone. ^^

I think headphones without wires already exist.
There just very expensive I guess...

Actualy I think they wouldn't be very handy..
Suddenly you'd just hear nothing but noise telling you there's a bad connection...

And you would probably lose them falling out of your ears..

But yes you wouldn't have to untangle the wires anymore ;D

Love these, defenitly gonna make them when my headphones are broken ;D

Yeah those headphones were too big for my ears and hurt when I wore them too. The new shape, iPhone ones are perfect though.

I think I kept my broken ones, very good idea Happy There are wireless headphones, sadly you can only use them in close proximity to a base station, so basically indoors. They are very cool though!

Yeah, for now we'll just have to invent new and better ways of keeping the wires untangled.

I keep hoping for that too. I guess we just have to keep on dreaming!

Those are amazing and I've got loads of iPod headphones hanging around. I wish they would invent headphones without the wires, that would be cool!
