You can make a simple pair of earrings in just a twenty minutes or in about an hour and a half, make the Rio earrings shown above. Throughout each section, Wells’ sparks your creativity with her mood board pages that are peppered with fashion photos, fabric swatches, beads, vintage letters and more.
