First time posting a project here..I was always too intimidated to post anything I had done seeing all the talented people to post but then I thought, How can I get better if I don't try? Seeing as I work as a family advocate for low income parents, it was time to practice what I preach...MOVING ON!

I have always struggled with stringing seed beads (I have meaty paws) and making wrapped loops. I realize it is something that will come with practice but apparently that was OK for some people but not for me! Well this weekend I got my haircut short (and I mean short, like between a pixie and a crew cut! Trying to grow out color) so I thought I would make myself some nice earrings.

Here goes!

This was trying to get the loops on...Thankfully the crimps that would NOT work with me will be hidden! LOVE CONES...

Finished project:

I had these glass seed beads forever and just could not part with them during the Bead Soup swap...I never used them and I literally had this tube for 2 years plus because I loved the color..sort of a faded denim color. (forgive my camera)

Your comments are welcome!

I totally understand your fears.  You came to a great place for fear reduction!  I have a hard time with cones and seeds beads and loopies.  yeah!  You did a great job.  Did you make the hoops.

I actually did not make them, I got them in a finding binge when the base metal stuff was 50% off and I just liked the look of em...but after you say that I wonder, those cant be THAT hard to make...
