Remember the wonderful book on how to make rings in 30 minutes? Well there are 3 more in the series. If you are like me you'll probably love the earrings one. I enjoy making earrings a great deal because they are fast to make and don't cost a lot in terms of materials.
The book, 30-Minute Earrings features 60 designs which used a variety of techniques and materials to create some of the most innovative styles. There is a bias towards wire and metal work due to the time factor. The book format shows pictures of the completed projects with written instructions. There are no step-by-step pictures unlike other books.
Shown here are some of my favorites. The earrings by Ann L. Lumsden doubles up on sparkles because the reflections. The techniques required for this design are sawing, filing, sanding, polishing, drilling, bending and wire work.
