Project Description:

It is no secret that I love copper. Using 3 different styles of rings, I was able to create a pair of earrings that is fun and fashionable while still being simple enough to wear every day.

Rating Easy, versatile earrings!
 
I've made these several times now for different people. They are so easy and look great. Definitely recommend to beginners or someone wanting a nice pair to go with their browns.
