What was your inspiration?
I found some earrings at Charlotte Russe which really looked interesting and I thought, I could do something like that but mine evolved as I worked on them- I chose to not chain them in the back but rather add beads which makes them longer but I like a little of color too.
What are you most proud of?
getting better at looping though still irksome at times and not cutting myself as I cut out the copper- and of course finishing another project :)
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
take your time, no hurry, took me a few days as I have several things in the making plus kids and normal everyday chores, use your imagination, look at things everywhere not just one place- have fun with it and if you mess up one take a minute and go out and smell the fresh air and talk to a neighbor. It will still be there when you get back. :) some of the biggest mistakes were our greatest successes.
