I made my first pair of earrings as a swap angel for the Pink Swap http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=94074.0

They're similar to those tassels Audrey H. wears in Breakfast at Tiffany's and those sported by some Manga characters.

I decided to add a fabric hoop as a change. A girl asked me to make a similar pair for her so I need feedback on what you think. Good, bad, so so? They're my first so criticisms are more than welcome

I really like them. I'm always on the look out for different earrings and these look great! I think the fabric hoop makes a nice touch.

I love your earrings, are they heavy?
I remember those from the movie, they were actually earplugs, she took them out when she answered the door all tired/hung over. I can't remember what I had for lunch, but I remember this from a movie I saw 15 years or more ago...
Anyway, yours are way cuter, I like how you did the fabric loop.

Thanks for complimenting Smiley

Actually, they're incredibly light and dangle sweetly. They took a while to make but it was worth the effort. I'm going to make a few more and list them on my upcoming etsy. A few people have been encouraging so I'm chuffed with my design. Translation "chuffed" - London speak for quietly pleased Smiley
