Shannon Bundschuh | NEW! Dew Drop Earrings | Friday, February 2, 2024 | 6 pm until 9pm



Like little drops of dew, these earrings are a wonderful staple piece to add to your jewelry box.

I wear mine more than most of my bigger earrings since they are super light and understated.

Working small comes with its challenges.

Let me show you my techniques for tiny bezels, making matching pairs, adding details to add interest to small pieces, and keeping bits and pieces organized when making multiples at one time.
