It is only wise to add a pair of earring to a favorite bracelet! When I discovered I could make Tyna bracelet with IrisDuo beads, too, I immediately started thinking of an earring design to pair with it.
I didn’t have to wait long to have an idea. One sleepless and night and restless brain provided a solution shortly. My husband jokes that I bead nightly, but in this case, he is absolutely right. If I can’t sleep, I bead in my mind, and that activity calms me down…Sometimes…If I don’t get up and introduce the idea to the physical realm.
And if I do, you get a free earring tutorial. Hurray!
