How To: Paperclip Earrings

Need a simple gift or some new jewelry for your wardrobe? Bust out some old paperclips, some simple beading supplies and you’ve got yourself a fresh, fun look. Adding beads can bring even more of a little pop and bring some school supply inspired fashion to any occasion.

What You’ll Need:

  • Plastic coated paperclips
  • Needle-nosed pliers
  • Earring hooks
  • Beads

What You’ll Need to Do:

  1. Twist your paperclips open and slide on any beads you’d like.
  2. Slide on the earring hooks, the small metal loop, onto the paperclip.
  3. Close the paperclip back to its original shape.
  4. Instant earrings!

I believe that it should be tested on animals, before tested out on humans. There are some things that we would not want to test on humans...I can see them having lab rats, but lab humans? There are some things that just don't sound right when put together in a sentence.  It's also a matter of what the public sees fit. The public might see testing out possibly dangerous chemicals and such on humans as inhumane, but if we did it on lets's say a mouse, then it's perfectly okay. I can see why some of you might be upset by scientists testing out dangerous things on animals, but let's think. Would we rather have animals like rats being tested on, or humans?
