    So glad you posted these here!
    (OK, I see a little glue on some, so I’m thinking you drilled, inserted eye-pin and glue…)

    Hi there, all my beading friends :)
    Sorry for the delay of my answer. How the loops are connected in the pencils: First, drill about 6-7mm deep hole by using dia 2mm drill pit. Then fill the hole with glue ( I used white glue) and pull a piece of eye pin in. Let dry. :)
    I did also update my website info. There was my ArtFire link, and I have been out of there for a some time now. I do still have my Arjasuni Etsy shop, my own shop is But I updated my link to my Facebook fan site. Please, come and like that site.
    Love and miss you all!

    Ahhhh, I should have known that these earrings were yours the minute I saw them. So cute and imaginative. Hope you are enjoying your time off … can’t wait to see more of your creations. (I would have had a hard time cutting my colored pencils up!)
