Tubes- More Than Hinges

I thought I’d show you the back of an earring and how I used a tube as an attachment- maybe it’s nothing new to some of you, but I was pretty chuffed to figure it out, lol.

With the tube attached- made w/ my extruder- all I had to do was use a headpin and add a pearl, wire wrap and voila! a pair of earrings.

This happened purely due to the reason that I didn’t want to have to add a hole and then use a jumpring, etc. and I wanted to leave the front of the oval unmarred- imagine if you wanted to put writing or a certain design that would be ruined by a hole, maybe this would be useful.
