What are you most proud of? I love the paddle shaped dangles. A friend at jewelrylessons.com shared her hammering technique with me, and I love how smooth and even the dangles are.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The dangles are the most difficult part of the earrings, but all in all it's a very simple project. Basically it's nothing else than a few beads and beadcaps threaded on an eyepin.

I love the earwires! Great Job on the paddle shaped dangles.

Thank you, Cathy! I wanted earwires design that go well together with the flower design of the rest of the earring. And I still love the smoothness of the dangles :))).

I'm so sorry, but obviously I still don't know how to comment on Craftsy (or reply to comments), lol. What I wanted to say is that I'm still a student. For ex. for this piece I learned a new hammering technique (you can find it here: http://www.jewelrylessons.com/tutorial/my-hammering-method) - and the rest is just beads and beadcaps threaded onto an eyepin (although it it took me a while to find the right color, size, kind and shape of beads). It's really not difficult to make.
