Wow, you can really use cork for almost anything, huh? I never thought of mixing beads and cork to make an earring, but I kinda like the idea. I bet I can find a few people who would appreciate the appeal and design that would love for me to make these earrings for them as a gift. I know that not everyone will appreciate it, but I'm sure most will.
