Colour Play – Earrings

I made these back in February, took photos of them on April 1st and got around to uploading them a few days ago. And posting them now. Because it takes a few seconds.

I picked up a vial of mixed beads at a store a while ago. I was debating between sorting them or just using them as is – I decided against sorting. I poured out the beads into a tray and picked up whichever ones were closest and just strung them on and this is what I ended up with. I forgot to do measurements before writing this, but they’re probably approximately 2.5″ in length, without including the fishhooks.


Materials: base metal jump rings and crimp tubes, nylon coated wire, antiqued silver fishhooks and multi-coloured plastic and glass seed & bugle beads.

    Those do look pretty crafty. You are so nimble. I could never do that without snapping somethng. O.o

    Hey, I just saw your comment on Kristi’s post about checking Redbox out and figured I’d give ya a link to their website, though I don’t think there are any up there in Canada:

    Those earrings are pretty spiffy lookin’, too. I especially like how you didn’t just make them identical, yet they still maintain the feeling of actually being a set of earrings instead of two separate similar style earrings.

    I’ve been looking for something different and I love these patterns. Anxious to get started.
