Earings

One of my obsessions in life is earings. I love them. If I go a day without earings, I feel naked. They are my necessity even over makeup. My search is for cheap, cute earings that I never see anywhere else. Here are my newest pairs of earings, 2$ each pair!

These are #33 and #34 of my collection. I have picked up earings from all over the place. Never paying more than 10$ a pair and those were my splurge pair. I am thinking I should start making my own earings because 18$ for a pair of feather earings is simply robbery. I feel like I won’t be able to find matching pairs of things to make my earings from. Does anyone out there make their own earings? Any advice? I hear that it is fairly easy and quite cheap but I have just never done it.
