Wht a really unique idea. They are so cute and being Crystal, they won't be heavy at all. Then you can take the same idea and make an enlarged version for a pendant. I already saved the instructions for a bracelet to go with this so I will have the set. Thank you so much for offering this. It's going to be showing off pride and sparkles this summer.

These are so cute. Nice to have a patriotic pair of earrings to wear certain places. These do not look hard to put together.

Great - but why do you need 80pc head pins?

Hi, Lady Donna Lee1. Not all 80 head pins are required; this is just how it is listed on Prima Bead's website because that is how they are sold. You can buy them from Prima, or if you already have some at home, you can just use those! Hope this helps :) Happy beading! --Editors of AllFreeJewelryMaking

I would love to do it. Is there a certain place I can buy the complete set of items I need?

Here is my go to place for the majority of my supplies. Fast shipping and good quality. Take care, Michelle

Hi, Maxs Lady! This is a Prima Bead pattern, so you should be able to buy everything you need there. You can find their company website by clicking the link in the byline below the project title! Happy beading :) --Editors of AllFreeJewelryMaking
