About this design:

A couple of days ago I went to the thrift store to prospect for jewelry components. The one thing I really wanted was a scrabble set but they didn't have one. Then I spotted a Monopoly game. I checked to see if it still had the player's pieces and it did! Instant ear rings! There was a second Monopoly game and it had the player's pieces, too. More ear rings!

They didn't have any thing in the jewelry that had possibilities so scratch the jewelry.

When I got home I spent the next hour or two drilling holes in the pieces. After I finished drilling the holes I made them into ear rings. Fun, fun, fun! I still have the top hats and shoes to drill then I'll be done.


Monopoly player's pieces, surgical steel ear wires, sterling jump rings

    Glad you like them Ladies. They pure and simple fun!
    I wonder what other games have pieces that would make good ear rings? My son suggested I check out the game of Clue. I’ve never played it but if it has pieces that are large enough why not give it a try. :D

    Talk about bad grammar… “They are pure and simple fun….” It helps when you put all of the words in a sentence.
