LIBRE EARRINGS or PINS
If you use the libre sensors you can turn them into beautiful earrings or shiny pins !
WHAT YOU NEED :
// libre sensors
// small stud earrings
or //shiny pin
// unisolve or zoff swipes ( you can get them at amazon here >> https://amzn.to/2DPqbDs )
HOW TO :
//step 1 : get the sensor clean; peel the sticky tape and rub off the glue with a solvent wipe
//step 2 : get an earring or pin and use it to push through the sensor stick part of the libre
// remove the sensor strip and core bit of the sensor so that you are left with a big hole in the middle
PS: save the little bits you remove so we can use them for a different project later !
//step 3 : put the earring or pin through the hole in the sensor
//step 4 ( optional) : secure the earring or pin with a touch of glue if you are sure you do not want to reuse the sensors with different shiny pins or earring types
//step 5 (optional ) add glue and glitter to the white part of the sensor for some extra oomph !
//step 6 : wear them proudly !
And just in case you do not use the libre sensors don't worry I have another jewelry project coming up soon using those pretty insulin vials! >> here <<!
Also If you have any pair of used sensors from dexcom or medtronic I am happy to have a go at making some jewelry if you can send them to me ! Challenge accepted!
