Earrings Marathon


About this design:

Sometimes watching the hockey game I have to work off nervous energy (love my hockey!). So one game I made all the frames in 16g, different color wires, then another game I finished out the earrings.

Components:

16, 18, 20, 24g wire (most from LB) Shell pearls, glass pearls.
