Glass Bead Earring Pairs 9.26.14

Did you know that one of the most common requests of glass bead makers is Earring Pairs?? Jewelry Designers love small, lightweight, handmade glass bead pairs because they don't require a huge investment in money or time to make the earrings, but the payoff can be nice.  And when you are selling more pricey jewelry, it's nice to have a few lower priced pieces such as earrings in your booth. And... the earrings make great gifts!

Check out Holly's Folly Glass' A Year of Earring Pairs made to order in three different shapes on Facebook.
