i'm thinking of putting some of those small diamont things around the beads with the name.
i'm still open for other ideas


To express uniqueness and artistry personalized jewelry are good choice. Whether it has necklace, bracelets, rings and earrings, carved with your name or initials has been the most fashionable items to underline one's individuality. If you want to make personally design earrings, you can look for good a shop, who offers this facility at reasonable price. One fine example of such shop is Monogramonline.com that can bring intense joy and happiness with their extensive collection of personalized jewelry.

That looks nice. The only thing is, watch the weight. If she often wears large or heavy earrings, you're fine, but if she normally wears finer earrings, or studs, she may find them uncomfortable.

Have a look around this site for ideas, but if you want to make them truly personal, hang something on the hooks that interests her. A local sewing shop might have interesting buttons to match a hobby, or you could carve/mould something out of polymer clay and hang it on the hook.

that is a realy smart notice...
so i'll scrap that idea (unless i can find some low-weight beads).
but i feel like doing something with her name...
i guess that with a smaller earring that's hard,
cause the name would have to be realy small.


Narrow twigs, with the bark on, but shaved flat on one side - heat a needle in a flame, and do some really small pyrography to write her name on the twigs, then hang them from the hooks.

Note that many crafts stores stock jewelry "findings" -- the basic metal components -- including those for earrings. Starting with that reduces the risk of the metal of the hook being the wrong size or being a metal that will cause irritation.

(I know someone whose skin reacts badly to anything but the higher-quality metals. You may want to check that issue with your friend before you invest too many hours, to avoid winding up with something she can't wear. I know, it ruins the surprise a bit, but "nice but I can't use them" ruins it worse.)
