Lucid - #17: the bead-drop earrings

This pair of earrings was made using all new craft store material. Nothing on it is thrift store or pre-owned, so it is the first of its kind for me. Though it's a fairly simple design, it is also a completely original one.

I started by doing a mock-up with the intention of practicing with beading and closing an eye pin. I used turquoise, blue, and purple O-rings to connect colored glass beads that I strung on an eye pin, each of which was ended with a crimp bead. Another eye pin was then wrapped around the wooden circle bead for connecting a fishhook clasp. Easy peasy.
