Mussel Earrings Online Workshop

Come and make a pair of Mussel earrings with me! Summer is here, it is time for colors and a little glamor!

The earrings can be smaller or larger, shorter or longer in shape to suit your taste.

We will use 16 microns thick fluffy soft wool, which will be decorated with sequined fabric to ensure the sparkle of the jewelry.

You can also make it discreetly elegant or bohemian in color, depending on the occasion.
