When you sharpen pencils what do you do with the shavings? If you’re a regular old ordinary person you probably don’t stand there contemplating the pencil shavings and wondering what artful thing you can do with them. But if you’re the creative type, you might just see jewelry possibilities evolve as you sharpen your pencils. And you might just go right ahead and design pencil shavings jewelry. And if you’re lucky, you might just get someone to pay you $10810 for your black and white pencil chip ring, $9,115 for your red pencil chip earrings and $7420 for your red pencil chip ring. You’ll probably need to make your pencil shavings jewelry not out of actual pencil shavings but out of material that would warrant the exorbitant price tag.
