Nevermore Earrings

Ever since I opened up my Etsy shop, ChristasCollections, I’ve given my jewelry pieces unique names to suit their one of a kind nature. (I rarely ever make two of the same design unless I’m making one for myself to wear as a display or it’s a custom order.) These earrings that I created over the weekend are very much like the Poe earrings that I made a few years back, as I used sterling findings and Picasso beads from my favorite seller of Picasso beads (ArtebellaSurplus.)

My findings.

1| Select your findings – It’s very important that your findings suit the beads you’re using for your project.
