Great Project! Pretty, Versityle and Quick Review by Paula B-DL
Rating

Clear directions with good photos, this project is fairly quick to get the hang of. It took me a couple hours to make the pair of earrings. I practiced the knotting technique with some craft copper wire first. These delicate hoops work with many styles and personalities. You can easily change the size of the hoops to fit the person who is wearing them. I can't wait to make them with gold wire next.
