Earring Tutorial

Okay, non-pierced earred people rejoice!  I have come up with a quite simple and probably not exciting way to make almost painless clip-on earrings!  From wire!  Be amazed! (or at least comment wittily)
 Supplies: Stiff-drying non toxic glue, charms/beads, eye pins, needle nose pliers
  1.  Bend the other end of the eye pin into a loop with the needle nose pliers.  Wrap the pin around the pliers forming a spiral.
  2.  Bend the spiral and flattened it with your fingers, making sure the end of the spiral is flat like a paper clip.  To put on ears, just slide the end onto you lobe, adjusting to make sure it stays put.  The earrings are the gold ones in the middle, the other was a random crafting moment.  They stay on pretty well, but I wouldn't suggest wearing them to dance or exercise.
Sorry this is it, Photobucket is being a pain today and I can't upload the rest of the pictures.  I'll try to get a photo of them being worn and I'll compensate with another post soon though!
