DIY Jewelry: Making Earrings

Hello, I'm Erica. I've been a passionate crafter for as long as I can remember. I have many interests but my focus has always been on jewelry. I've been making jewelry for myself, friends, and family for over 20 years. My experiences include: teaching classes, editor of the Simply Beads Newsletter, manager of the Simply Beads Kit Club, which included videos for each kit, and author, Jewelry Beyond The Bead: Make it Today, Wear it Tonight.

I love making jewelry because it is so personal. You can make it be exactly what you want it to be and you feel great wearing it. Also, you choose the materials and who you buy from. The blue lampwork beads in these earrings are made by a stay-at-home-mom, like myself.

Earrings are a great starting point. They can be the simplest to design and they provide almost instant gratification. I want to provide a quick class with basic information so someone can run out to the craft store, buy what they need and get started with confidence. 

I've found, in teaching, that confidence was the one ingredient that students lacked most of all. I strive to build that confidence up and teach students that they are can be creative!
