I absolutely love sewing sparkly thinks to felty things. The juxtaposition of texture, the wearability, the instant gratification.....the mess I've made.
I decided I was lacking earrings, and what better way to remedy that then to make a few pair. But I did require quick and easy, so with the seed bead and crystal stash just an arms reach away, I pulled out the felt balls from Ornamentea and began the beading.
I'm quite pleased with the result.
Purple pair share Heather Trimlett and Michelle Goldstein lampwork and are finished with Blue Iris Design earwires.
I love the almost candy like confection of the aqua with crystal sequins.
The pink pair swing from a short silver chain (swinging earrings fill in the jawline nicely)
Oh the fun I've had! Mark even got into the act with a suggestion for an asymmetrical pair. He remarked 'They would be more edgy' and if you know my dear husband, it totally cracked me up that he would say 'edgy'.
Now which pair am I going to wear first?
Happy New Years to all, enjoy, love, and stay safe!
