The 2014 is rapidly advancing to the end and many holidays are coming
up. Our 52 earrings project is just right for us to get started on
fancy glittering earrings and ornaments. Edda Guastalla from Italy
shares  a red hot beaded earring earring. Nikki and Jon have  a
glamorous pair in sexy black. And Dagmar  has designed a lovely cluny
pattern for us. If it were tatted in size 80 or finer, it would make a
spectacular earring also.
