What a fantastically easy design - the only difficulty was curving the head pin. In the end a "borrowed" one of our budgie's dowling perches and it worked a treat. I also used glittery black/white,deep garnet/clear and dark/pale green. Thank you. Sheila Wilkins, Rothwell,UK

What a great idea to use your birds perch. Gave me the idea that when I make these I will use a dowel stick. I bet your earrings look nice the colors sound pretty. Did you make any for gifts. Would love to see pictures.

So cute and simple! I can still make these in time for Christmas. What a great stocking stuffer idea! Happy holidays!
