This Instructable is a simple – practical – CONVERSION of two mini white
LED Key Ring Flashlights into two very bright and very colorful
"FLASHING RGB LED EARRINGS".
In the case of this Instructable.... A picture is worth a thousand words...
So - I have basically laid out the method of how to make this transformation
in simple picture steps.
These colorful pictures are clear and concise illustrated instructions,
placed in order to follow like a User Manual.
Step 1: PROJECT PREVIEW

Step 3: The FLASHING RGB LED
Above is a picture of a 5 mm "FLASHING RGB LED " - the main component of the Earrings.
It flashes by using an Integrated Circuit that is built into the LED itself to produce
a pre-programed pattern of both slow and fast colorful flashes.
