Pattern Description:

Would you believe if I say I was inspired by the Ferries Wheel which I had sat on once during my childhood days? Well .... it does look like the Ferries Wheel to me.

I have always love wearing ear studs, hence the creation of this large ear studs. I like the look of the wavy lace-like design of the earrings. You can make them smaller if you use a smaller bead in the middle and a slightly narrower lace-like loops. This ear studs can always be modified and made into a pendant or dangle earrings when you insert jump rings and ear hooks. You can link them together and make them into a bracelet.

Put it on for a function or dress it down with a t-shirt and jeans. I am sure you'll attract attention with this large ear studs. ^-^
