Well This is my second or third pair of earrings because someone always falls in love with them and steals them and I'm stuck making another pair. I have these thoughts going threw my head all the time and sometimes I just go threw with them.  I find myself roaming the aisles of Michael's Looking for something to create. I remembered the first Iphone case I made I was so happy I showed it to everyone and felt great that it was something I did all on my own. My Inspiration for the dime piece earrings came from me wanting to make a statement stud. I get so many compliments when I wear them.

what you will need:

Glue Gun $5
Glue Stick $1.00 (10 pack)
2 dimes
2 6mm earring post $2
2 backs $2
TOTAL:  $11.20

FIRST: Rinse Dimes in vinegar and allow to towel dry

SECOND: Turn On Glue Gun

THIRD: Place a small amount of Glue on the earring post let stand for about 5 seconds

FOURTH: Holding the dime in you hand place the earring post and press firmly

let stand for 2 minutes and now you are ready to rock your Dime Piece earrings!

*If you want these to last longer I suggest coating the earrings with a clear coat. 

I guarantee these will be a conversational piece anywhere you go you can use any coin of your choice but the bigger the coin the bigger the earring post and stronger your glue adhesive should be.
