Ms. Frizzle - here I come!
Three of my girls think I've gone over the edge of nerdism on this one. One sides with me. (Thanks, Faith!)
Last Sunday as I sat in church admiring a young lady's earrings before the service began, I was hit with the idea that it would be cool to make DNA earrings. DNA is just such an elegantly beautiful macro-molecule! Unfortunately, my jewelry making experience is nil. However, I figured if someone had come up with a knit model (see previous post), surely some other crafty soul would have designed DNA earrings. And such is the case. I found several tutorials, but my favorite is this one which happens to come from our local university.
Faith had most of the necessary parts, and we improvised for the rest. I think the result is kind of fun. Faith says she might even wear them when she starts volunteering next week with Amanda at Wonderlab, our local science museum.
