Once I attended a free taster course on jewelry making. We were told always make a draft chart of what we are doing in case we drop the item we are making and lose all the beads all over the floor.
This was my week attempt to create my own draft.
To be honest I've made one earring, draw a chart of it and then made another one.
The metal parts of these earrings are made of gun metal. We were told that now all metal findings are made out of metal that does not cause allergy.
