These are the Elegant Drop Earrings from Bead & Button magazine December 2018. I saw these in the magazine, liked them, and decided to try to make them. They didn’t take long at all, maybe an hour and a half for the first one and an hour for the second. The only problem I had was with the tension; it’s not quite right in either of them (and different in each), but I think they’ll be ok. I’ve just now started wearing earrings for the first time in years; I’d let my right ear close up and had to get it repierced. I had a job where I couldn’t wear jewelry and didn’t bother with earrings the rest of the time, but I changed jobs over the summer to an office job where I can wear jewelry.
