Ok, this is the first time I have ever attempted making earrings. I think they turned out rather well. So here are the three pair I made. Let me know what you guys think.

Very nice...and the beads are very cool! I love those kind of earrings where it is a grouping of dangle earrings.

I love them all. Where did you get the beads on the first and last pair?

The first pair-I bought a pack of mixed glass tye dye colored beads. They had various round beads in different sizes and then those tubular ones. I usually do hemp jewelry and those were too small to string on the hemp. And so I decided to use them for earrings. I bought them at Hobby Lobby and have also seen them in the craft section at Walmart and also at Jo-Ann's craft store.

The third pair-I found those marked down at Jo-Ann's. They glass tube beads with the swirly print on them.

Just a thought i had while I was looking at your earrings -

Just as a little reassurance that pieces won't fall off of the jump rings (you can see the small space) try grinding down the ends of the jumps with a metal nail file to smooth them out and then close it...

Just a little thought....
They're great!

Wow, thanks for the advice. I never thought of that. I'm a newbie at this so any advice is welcome!

Oh yes - any time....(I really like being able to share whatever I know; which isn't all that much). Investing in a good pair of wire cutters will also help to keep the ends nice and flat rather than pointy. When I got my first "good" pair I couldn't believe the difference it made!
