DIY Blue Daisy Hoops Earrings Wire Jewelry Making Tutorial

Okay guys, it’s back to work for me LOL. I had a good time with my family and relatives this very recent Christmas and now it’s learning and making jewelry time for me! I promised the fans over at the Fanpage before Christmas to share how I did these cute pair of earrings but I was not able to post the steps. Well, promise is a promise so here it is :) By the way, special thanks to Yusonda Whitaker for giving the name “Blue Daisy Hoops.”DIY Blue Daisy Hoops Earrings Wire Jewelry Making Tutorial
