Say goodbye to store prices and say hello to a jewelry box filled with fantastic dangling earrings. Better yet, with the holidays around the corner, say hello to a present for every girl on your holiday list with pierced ears. The price is awesome and the time involved to make them is less than driving to the mall. Just think: No more crowds! Imagination; however, is the key to the best present in town for the girls on the list.
