    I really like the contrast in this one between the brass wire and the green beads. Those little butterflies are so cute. I think the way they twist & turn would look like they were flying past your ear. I’d also like to see these modeled. Thanks for the how-to photos too. :)

    This is a cute one with the butterflies and lighter green beads. I would still like to see them on a person’s ear.

    My favorite one is the one with the big drop bead, but this is also very pretty. Thanks for the extra pictures of how it’s done.

    Ok when you said modelled, I though you meant how the actual item was modelled or molded it to whatever it is, lol. Here is a pic of what they look like.

    NK, Thanks so much for posting the picture! What a great effect & extra sparkle for the ear. There are so many possibilities. Do they stay on well, or can they fall off if you do a lot of bending over? I bet you have many in all different colors!

    They stay on pretty well, you just squeeze the cuff part tight enough. I had one I made that was a bit heavy so I I folded the top so that the swirl was behind the ear and then you give it a little squeeze to grip the ear.
