What was your inspiration?
to be honest I was most excited about hammering the frame :) let's do more of that!
What are you most proud of?
I was scared I chose the wrong beads or ugly colors, but they don't look half bad together.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
take your time wrapping the beads around, you really want to hit the same spot and to not build up the wire too much there. also, I started my wire on the side with the closed loop, this made it simple to slide the center stone from the angled wired side (no need to open the loop!). just thought that was faster and neater. I also made sure to make the earrings mirror images of each other, after all that counting and lining up I thought it was worth it.
