Sparkly Tube Set Earrings

Course Description

About this course

In this workshop we will make fun earrings using sterling tube bezels and faceted CZs to make sparkly stud and hanging earrings. We will make 3 pairs of earrings, 1 pair of studs, 1 pair of dangling earrings and 1 pair of whatever design you wish to do!   Demonstrations will include how to solder on ear posts, how to make your own ear wires and how to set stones in the tube bezels.   You will go home with 3 pairs of wonderfully sparkly earrings, just in time for the holidays!
