I was just looking through my bead stash last night and found some wood beads and wondered what I should make wit them and I came across this gilded ball drop earrings painted with NAIL POLISH. I would never know because this looks like a designer bead. So simple easy and so cheap to make and a great tutorial. Thanks for sharing this.
