    Beady, I think using this type of stitching technique for earrings is a very unique idea. Imagine the possibilities. What is the length? Nice husband to inspire you!

    Thanks ladies.
    Crystal – They are 3 5/8 in long. I’m keeping them because they’re so fun to wear.

    These are great earrings….they are very festive and unique….right up my alley!! I invariably make long earrings, not always meaning to. They look good when your hair is long…which I haven’t been to a salon since the pandemic began.

    Bright and cheerful. The colors are great and the shapes on the ends…. they remind me of gumball machines. :D
