I have to confess, I was more anxious than usual for Little Crafter to take his afternoon nap today! After getting some new beads yesterday and looking at a few library books about jewelry making, I was ready to try my hand at some projects. I tried to do a bit of work while he was finishing up his lunch, but he got mad at me for not paying enough attention to him and dumped his apple juice on the floor. Twice. So, the rest of my beading waited until now. I focused on earrings today because they’re quicker and easier than anything else, and I had some new ideas. I’ve discovered that my favorite way to make things involves some kind of decorative wire shaping, so that’s what I decided to play with this afternoon. This first pair is a gift for Jess, who got me started on this hobby last Wednesday. She loves blue and I thought they kind of look like a decorative “J.”
Hope you have a great day!
Those are some really cute earrings!
I quite obviously don’t do jewelry making—-so I’m not an expert, but I think they all look great. I love the shape of the last set–very creative.

You could always get a board and drill holes into it, then place cut dowels in the holes. You could do it all for less than $3 if you have the tools to do it.
