These are very pretty. I really like carnelian. It comes in many shades from dark red to an orangish yellow. And they are much less expensive than Ruby or garnet stones. So making these won't cost you a lot. These are very easy to make. Not only earrings but use the same technique to make a ring.

These are really different. I love unique or different style jewelry. And these are extremely easy to copy. You can change the cantons to get a different color theme too. This has really awakened met creative inner child! Different shapes, different colors and you will have a brand new jewelry wardrobe !

Bending bead wiring is always difficult for me. I struggle to get two different things to match. Theyre gorgeous, nonetheless. The designer used 18 gauge wire which is a little bigger than the normal ear post earring size but I am guessing if you lube them up then they should slide right in.

I really like these post earrings and have never attempted to make any yet but these are so neat and vintage looking which I like. You can wear these Dotty earrings anywhere and can change the bead to any color for any Holiday or even use birth month colors. What a great gift these would make for family or friends. Glad to see one that is easy to make and after the first pair I bet they get easier. On my list for sure.

These are such beautiful DIY earrings! I love that you could wear these for Christmas, Valentine's Day, the Fourth of July....these possibilities are endless!

I actually have a vintage bracelet with stones like this. A great throwback piece of jewelry that still looks modern!

Bula from sunny Fiji Islands.These are beautiful. Just wondering if i t is okay to make and sell at our local craft markets? I am a senior citizen and love making new things to sell. Best regards. Len
