I taught the Beaded Lace Earrings class the other night. My awesome students were all surprised at how quickly they go together.
I used vintage 3-cut seed beads for the main bead. They are all different sizes, so you've gotta be really careful in culling your beads. There are also lots of Swarovski crystals, plus twisted bugles and large daggers. I used teal Niobium earwires.
