Building Block Jewelry

I have been helping 
with a local 
kids and rockets/robots group

We had so much fun helping kids 
at a rocket launch
they do a lot with Lego robots

Once a month May-Oct
our community 
has what is called  1st Fridays

The group has
had a booth to promote themselves
the wife of the leader
has made earrings as a fundraiser

so I thought hmmmm
I can make jewelry and donate it

so they can make some much
needed funds to help

pay for many of their activities
so out of a pile of Lego
pieces this is what I came up with

In order to make these
I got to play with a new toy

it is a battery operated Dremel!

I got it at WalMart
for $20

Dremel Minimite Cordless Rotary Tool

Now it is not super speedy
but for me it is the best because
it is a little slower
(power tools intimidate me)

and was itching to play with it
as you can see
it is sooooo
easy to drill with 
you will be seeing
