These simple but elegant earrings remind me of the earrings of the glamour girls of the past and the jewelry they wore, Sophia Loren, Joan Crawford are just a few. These earrings feature Chatons and a pear-shaped fancy stone, and work up quickly after the first one. Depending on the crystal color chosen, you will have options for embellishments: 2mm Swarovski crystal, 2mm Czech pearls or 11/0 seed beads. You also have the option of utilizing several options for earring findings including an ear-wire or a post. Prerequisites for this class: proficiency in peyote stitch and step ups. This is a project orientated class and time is not spent on learning basic stitches.
