This is really an experiment.
Got the instructions for these out of a book. The instructions are actually wrong at one specific point. I was able to figure out where they were wrong while zipping the first earring together and noted a possible fix that I was able to use on the second earring. I was right. So the two earrings are not an exact match.
Also, this project uses doubled 6-pound Fireline, which is very difficult to make multiple passes with. So when I ran short on line due to overestimating how much I had in relation to what needed to be stitched… it’s awkward. Tried to hide the knot of added line well.
Also, photographing something 3-D and sparkly is not the easiest thing!
All in all, these qualify as practice pieces. Might do another set now that I have the bugs worked out… but probably going to do some simpler earrings first.
