With some extra time on my hands this holiday weekend, I made another pair of earrings and a bracelet. Both turned out pretty well with minor modifications needed to the bracelet.
For the bracelet, the finished size was supposed to be 7.5 inches, but mine was closer to 8. It was way too big for my wrist, so I re-did each side removing 7 beads in the process. After that the size was just right.
