Description

Based on one of BeadStyle Magazine's most successful special issues, A Year in Earrings offers a different earring design or project variation daily for an entire year. The front matter has been expanded to include design ideas, clarification of types of ear wires, directions for making ear wires, tips and shortcuts, and an explanation of what metals are best to use in earrings for those with metal allergies. Making a different pair daily is easy and quick thanks to clear photographs, step-by-step instructions, complete materials lists, and carefully explained basic techniques. These earrings use a full spectrum of materials -- glass, crystals, metals, chain, wood, charms, Lucite, and everything in between. Individual designs include Sparkling Circles, Natural Chandeliers, Keshi Pearls, Bold Hexagons, and many more. A Year in Earrings offers beaders a wealth of projects to make and show off.
