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'm not saying humans should be tested on. There are alternatives where humans and animals are both not tested on such as "Organs on chips" which basically mimics the structure and function of human cells and tissues and they have been proved to replicate human medical responses more accurately than animal experiments do. There's also another alternative which is cell and tissue models that are used to access the safety of medicines as they replicate key traits of normal human skin. Besides not all animals react the same way as humans depending on different medicine types. There's various alternatives being used now that don't harm animals in anyway. I believe humans and animals are equal in fact we all come from the same kingdom so why should they be treated any different?

Woah, okay so, years ago when I was 12,13 maybe, I started this story and remembering it and finding it on here (with a different account,of course) is amazing, so if anyone wants too, I can maybe restart it? Or I can rewrite it, either way just say if you want me too!!!

Uniforms - other kids can't see your taste in fashion and you don't stand out by what you wear, AND they can't judge you if you're different. With uniforms, people are being judged on their personalities, not the brands that they wear.
