You can go download a free earring project from my book, Beading With Filigree on the Lark Crafts blog. I like the part where Nathalie Mornu talks about 'rooting around in her junk' to find earring parts. Wow, that has never happened to me. Junk rooting. Beads. Weird.
You can subscribe to the Lark Crafts blog right there on the page. I do.
