Yes, I'm one of those too...
...I admit I couldn't resist one of current Tschibo offers and I have bought some craft things.
For a long time I have planned to buy everything to create my own pearl earrings, but I've been to lazy (sometimes to busy...) to look what is necessary, but now...haha! Tschibo had everything in sets so I've got them.
Now I own a whole selection of rings, pearls, connectors and grippers.
I am truely suprised how easy it is (this might be also caused through the right equiptment...) and after 10 minutes a was holding my frist earrings in my hands or better I saw them hanging in my earlobes :o)
That's what they look like. I knwo, nothing special, but I like them anyway... :o)
