Pearl Earrings

Recently my daughter's best friend had a birthday.
I, as usual, forgot about it until the afternoon of the party. It was a low key party and presents were not required, but since it was my daughter's best friend, I thought we should give her something. Instead of having to drag all four of my kids to the store, I decided to make her a pair of earrings. 

My daughter actually designed the earrings. They are just simple pearls, but so pretty. 

I fell in love with them and made a second pair for my daughter. I've actually stolen them a few times to wear myself.

While I'm on the subject of earrings let me show you some I made back in December.
My baby sister helped me design them, although I've changed them a little since the hoops I had them on kept breaking. I also had a different bead instead of the pearl, but it was hanging funny so I changed it.

 I love the pearl with the silver beads.

What do you think? Which earrings do you like best?
