The Mad Dash Pair

About this design:

I was getting ready to go
out somewhere on Saturday. I was unable to find earrings I wanted to wear. So I went up to my studio and I quickly made these earrings.


Wire, recycled glass donuts.

    I like the Keep It Simple style of your earrings. Create one more as a focal with some cahin and you have a great set.

    I agree with Miss E. It’s much better to make jewelry then buy it.

    I did the same thing yesterday, was going out last night and did not have any earrings to match my outfit, so I went into my bead room and whipped up a pair. They were different than these ones but the end result worked perfect for me. It is so nice to be able to do that.
