Earring making is a great for the impatient crafter to complete something quickly and wear it in minutes. Fast, fun, and relatively inexpensive. Enough yammering. (I'm impatient too). Let's get moving and earring making.
A great way to jumpstart your creativity is to check out other people's earring designs. If you'd like, you can check out my earring gallery page to see some designs.
