This is a really great pair of earrings. You can do it with two colors of coordinating crystals which somes out pretty. You can also do all one color of crystals which is also nice. Whenever I wear these people will comment and ask where I got them. They get noticed. They're very quick to whip up and a great way to use up a small number of crystals you might have laying around!! **************************** A little about me and my patterns--I've been a technical writer for about 18 years. My undergraduate degree is in technical communications and my masters degree is in writing. The instructions I've written here are comprehensive from threading the needle to finishing your piece. I provide a graphic with every step. I teach these patterns in libraries across Long Island. I teach using the patterns and know the spots people have trouble and refine the patterns with each class. In short, my work has been reviewed many times allowing me to make sure that they are complete and thoroughly tested. You can be sure that you will be able to follow my patterns and create your jewelry. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Stitching experience great--not mandatory SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Earrings hang about 1" from ear wire when using 4mm Swarovski Crystals. Can also be made with 4mm Czech FP Crystals and will be slightly larger.
