I love the simple teardrop shape of these large earrings.

They started out their costume life shiny gold… but soon became dull and coppery

So I decided to cover them in a bright tangerine cotton thread.

 

And now they’re good to go

To cover each earring –  ss, ch 1, dc all around the loop, packing the stitches in tightly to cover the metal underneath. Pull thread through and finish the ends off
