How to Make Earrings - Pearl Earrings
It all began six years ago when I wanted to try a new hobby and learn how to make earrings. I took a beading class at a local bead store and my beading fun began. It was fun! I made a new year's resolution to sell my homemade earrings at a local craft fair and it didn't stop after one year.
Every year now I participate in the local craft fair which also motivates me to create new designs. This year I've been fascinated with Swarovski pearls and making different types of earrings with them.
After you learn how to make earrings and how easy it is, you will find that it's very rewarding to participate in craft fairs or just make homemade earrings for coworkers, friends and family.
This year I hosted a big birthday party and it's not surprising that I gave my pearl earring creations to the guests as their "goodie bag".
