Week 11: Thistle

A companion set of earrings for Week 10’s necklace! So fancy!!

Getting started... ...And done! On Black

Complete set!

Week 9: Bay

Finally got to finish these! I’ve been waiting to use these green aluminum earwires, and Week 9 offered the perfect opportunity.

The beaded beads are flat even-count peyote (curled and stitched to make tubes). The green gemstone is dyed mountain “jade” (I think), which is a dolomite marble from Asia. The round drops are mother of pearl.

These colors make me think of iridescent mermaid scales. 🙂

The raw materials The hard part -- my fingers haven't forgiven me yet. Close up

All done!

Week 8: Forever Blue

Tada! Knocked this one out in a couple of hours today. I got these glass focal pieces in a big jumble sale, and it was clearly their time to get put to use.

The raw materials. Stringing it along! A (fuzzy, sorry!) work in progress.

The end result!

Week 5: Orchid Hush

Since this week’s color is in the same family as last week’s, I decided to continue with the lilac stone rounds and create a pair of earrings to match last week’s necklace!
