Earrings


We've been car hunting lately, so I've only got this pair of earrings finished recently...they're a spiral with daggers at the end spiraling around...very 3-D.

Wow! When I opened your site today I immediately fell in love with THESE earrings. It is just my color and they look so interesting and beautiful!!! How do they keep their "curvated" form?

hi, be! lots of thread tension and increasing the size of beads.

Ah ok! Thanks for the info. So what bead sizes did you use? Just curious! I won't be able to make them, anyway ... ;)

It doesn't matter what size you use (I use several)...it only matters that you start out with the smaller size and then go to a larger size...that's what makes the spiral happen....you can do it with 11's and 8's or 13's and 11's...it will work with any of them.

Oh THOSE are right up my alley! What a juicy color, too!
