Do you find that it takes some practice to get your loops just right? I always get them uneven, and it makes me angry that I spend the time and get it wrong. I wonder if you could do something similar with jump rings and just attach them to the bottom of the earring. Did you try it that way too?

So simple but so cute are these Beaded mistletoe earrings. I can not believe they are so easy and there is a video that shows you how. This is a great pair of earrings for the holidays and I will be making some for me and a few for my family and friends. I also learned a better way to make the loops by watching this. Thanks. Anyone going to make yourself some for Christmas?
