Even though I’m not fond of this classic jewelry niche as part of my own wardrobe, I do love the look of some earrings - especially the long, fringed, shoulder-duster type. The popularity of feather accessories and boho jewelry means that big, bold and dangly earrings are a trend favorite. Purely for the fun of it, I went on the hunt for some beautiful long earring tutorials, and found some fabulous projects! Many of these projects come in at around 3 inches, but could easily be adapted for even longer earrings by using longer chains, or adding more beads.
