So, I took a wonderful earring-making class last night. There is an adorable beadshop about 30 minutes east of where I live called Simply Strung. My instructor (Kindra) was just excellent – sweet, articulate, funny… and exacting. Just made to order. Her instructions were clear and her teaching style was really effective. Anyway, here are my first earring attempts. They are displayed in the order of instruction. Kindra made the first one alongside with me, then talked me through its mate, plus the second pair and start of the third. For the last (sixth) earring, I was on my own.
I also re-worked one of my earlier bracelets. I think it’ll work nicely with the earrings in the first picture, no? 😀
