Easy Card Stock Earrings
"Printed images on card stock create surprisingly realistic looking gem earrings. The beads are four pieces of card stock glued together then finished with the magic of Diamond Glaze. The glaze gives the images dimension and a shiny, raised surface. The detailed filigree copper bead caps enhance the illusion of these gem wannabes. Although they resemble thin slices of stone, these earrings dangle with none of the weight associated with the real thing. You might even forget you're wearing them!"

This is truly a unique idea. At first I was thinking of paper and how flimsy they would be. But four layers of card stock is a lot sturdier. It's really an easy project. And once you have the idea you can make any shapes you like. Plus change to silver plated bead caps.
