My first try turned out pitiful. I quickly disassembled them so that there was no evidence of my lack of creativity. I checked out youtube, and found 2 videos. The first explained to me how to use the tools I bought.
The second video was a tutorial which explained how to make earrings with buttons. It goes really quick, so I had to rewind and pause a few times, but it explained the process very well.I made 2 styles of earrings, one to match my necklace/bracelet set, and another pair for my 4 year old niece who is visiting for a few days. I am very pleased with the results.
