I wasn't quite sure what to make for Whiplash this round, I'd had a few thoughts - but most of them required more time than I'd allowed myself. What can I say? I like complicated projects, hehe. Anyhoo, when this idea struck, I knew it was magic. How simple, just embroidery floss as "yarn," wound into balls, as earrings.
Well, it proved a little more difficult in practice; but I think the effort was well worth it for the finished effect. All I did was wind the floss around an eyepin, being careful to conceal the end. Making two the same size and shape was the hardest part, it just took a bit of patience. A dot of fabric glue secured the end; then I bent the wire into a loop at the top of the ball and snipped the excess off. A little bit more bending to make it all perfect, and that was really all it took. Easy peasy!
I based the color palette for these on Ravelry's colors, (have I mentioned I got my limited edition Beta t-shirt the other day? I bet I forgot… squeeeeee!) I have the color numbers of the embroidery floss, if anyone is interested - just let me know!
