Classic yet lovely, just like you ;)
I have recently discovered I LOVE lace, so much so that I couldn't even bear to through away the scraps after my last project. So, of course, I decided to make earrings!

I apologize for the poor quality photos- this was my first attempt at posting all of the how-to steps :)

    This is probably the most time consuming step: you're going to fold the extra flap of lace around the wire, then sew around the wire to secure the lace.

    TIP: A small clamp of some sort is a good idea to secure the lace to the wire as you're sewing.
