Untaken Road Earrings in Gold (Reboot)

PROJECT E2217
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
Take to the road with these global inspired earrings featuring the TierraCast Caravan Collection.
Reboot: We love these beautiful statement earrings featuring so many lovely TierraCast components. The original jade gemstones pictured were limited quantity and sold out quickly; we have replaced them with pretty amazonite gemstone beads in the instructions. The original head pin and eye pin kit used has also been replaced. Feel free to choose your favorite 4mm beads to complete these earrings.
