Tasty faux-bakelite earrings.

Today, a selection of lovely earrings:

Brought to you by this delicious pupu platter!

I bought these tiki forks for $1 on sale.
Don't they look like bakelite?

For jewels, I think they're pretty all by themselves -

Or with a few small embellishments.

I have some other ideas for these forks in the back of my mind; I suspect they will reappear in future posts. In other words...

Don't stick a fork in me - I'm not done crafting!


  1. Michelle,

    I have just sat here and read through your entire blog, and're a freaking genius! I love making jewelry, but I am no where near as clever as you are with designs. I particularly loved the headband idea as well as the paper clip earring idea (just wish I had a Staples in my area). No matter...I'm sure I'll see some funky paper clips around some where, and when I do, I'll know exactly what to do with them!
