Just a note to say that we tried to make the photos bigger, as requested, however the images from The Bead Studio weren't big enough to enlarge...if you continue to have questions about particular steps in this project, please feel free to contact the designer (The Bead Studio) with your questions! Thanks for all your comments, and keep em' comin!

I'm a beginner beader and found the instructions easy to follow. The photo of the item could be bigger but otherwise a very pretty design.

To many elements and too much time. If one was to sell these earrings they would not get what they would really worth. A lot of time would go into these earrings to create

These are very nice earrings, the illustrations are a bit confusing for a beginner, but I'm an experienced jewelry maker, so I could follow along, but for someone who is not, this would present some peoblems. I like them, I hope in the future, the instructions will be a lot more user friendly, because not everyone is an experienced jewelry maker.
