GD & T.O.P -Knock Out

G-Dragon and T.O.P are members of the Korean music group known as Big Bang. I have been expanding my tastes in music recently. They are fiercely talented and successful in Asia, but their fan base is steadily growing throughout the world.

Handmade Feather Earrings!

In my endeavor to harness my creativity (which I need to implement more), I decided to start off making something not too difficult. I've learned that it's best to gradually build on, than tackle something strenuous because my patience isn't always the best- if something is too challenging I'll either stop what I'm doing or procrastinate. In any case I usually procrastinate.

I do realize that feather earrings have been around for a few years, but they are hard to find unless you know the right spots to shop depending on the city. If I happen to find any, they're either too small, or just bland. So I found a solution- making the earrings myself!

I picked up some feathers from Hancock Fabrics and some earring and jewelry components. I bought some items from Wal-Mart's craft section, but you can also check Michael's. Earring components, especially for sensitive ears, can be a bit trickier to find. When I went to one store they were sold out, so I had to shop around. You'll also need jewelry making tools- pliers, crimps, etc.

Check out the earrings!
