Cheri's Signature

  • Supplies

Beautiful fire-polished beads in many different colors come together in these hoop earrings to create a look of Stained Glass. You can create a pattern with your colors like Cheri did, or mix them in randomly. Choose different colors to create a whole new look. It's always fun to play and experiment with color in your jewelry, and earrings are a great way to do that!
