I recently made my first purchase from Mindy Mae's Market a deal a day style website that features craft supplies and home accessories. I purchased 50 Cabochon's for $8.00 it was a random set but below is what was in the baggie and of that 50 I got 11 matching pairs for earrings. If you want all matching sets Etsy is a great resource. I've got more ideas for my random pieces for cute pendants so I wasn't worried about having extra random pieces.
I love wearing a simple stud and the vintage look of a cabochon is very cute. I picked up Earring Posts and Earring Backs at Michaels for 2.99 ea. These two packs would make 30 pairs of Earrings so .20 for a pair of earrings, and you could get that even cheaper if you use a Coupon for Michaels.
I got out my favorite crafting glue E6000 this stuff is awesome!
Then I simply put a small dab of glue on the post and glued it to the Cabochon and let them dry.
Once they dried I simply grabbed some packing tags, punched a hole in those and put on the simple earings and secured the earing backs. I think these are great little gifts and fun earrings for spring!
