I am a huge fan of Tammy Powley who writes the jewelry making articles over on About.com.
She is a great cheerleader and mentor for others in the bead/jewelry industry as well as jewelry making hobbyists. She's kind of like the all knowing/all seeing Oz...
Tammy never hesitates to share information even when it took bumps in the road for her to figure out first. She's a open book. Speaking of books, she has written more than I can count, so if you're looking for jewelry making books, make sure to search on Tammy Powley at Amazon. :)
Okay, back to these earrings! Tammy created these fun dangly earrings around a filligree heart component. To me they feel like they could be worn in a very formal setting or with jeans and a great blouse. That's the sign of a classic piece of jewelry. Love these, oh, by the way...Happy Valentine's Day!
As always, thanks for sharing Tammy!! Instructions for making these earrings can be found here on About.com.
