In celebration of March being National Craft Month, Fusion Beads is kicking off their annual 30 day bead challenge.  Each day is an opportunity to strengthen skills, learn new techniques and inspire creators to create everyday.

I have participated in 2 previous Fusion Beads Challenges and had so much fun. I learned new techniques and challenged myself to work with different types of materials, beads and colors.

Here’s Day 1 … Make an eye-catching pair of earrings.


I wanted the earrings to have sparkle so I used AB coated 4mm Czech fire polish beads and faceted briolettes.  Then I added the rolo chain to give the earrings some length.  These earrings hang 4 inches from the earwire and just touch my shoulders.
