"This set, three row pearl and rondelle bracelet and earring set, took me one weekend day to complete. I used two different sizes of white pearls 10mm and 0mm I also used 5mm topaz rondelle for a little added splash of color, the bracelet is 10 ins. long from clasp to clasp, you can do sets of two 5mm instead of the three if it is to long, the earring are 3 ins. long, from end to the earhook. If earrings are to long you can design a pair with just two of the 0mm and one rondelle, or just one 10mm pearl."
