Earrings!

I love fun earrings and with short hair I get to show them off, so I've been playing. The first pair is destined to be gifted, but I really like the coloration.




I also have a dagger obsession, especially these spotted daggers, so I am always looking for fun things to do with daggers. These are capturing daggers on the top and bottom of a right angle weave stitch which is then sewed into a tube and slipped over the top of the cz. There is some perfecting which needs to be done, but all in all I like them. Can't wait to make a second pair.....but not today.



Today I go on my weekly Tuesday outing with friends, and most likely will be knitting on Bitter Root, a lace shawl which has been neglected. In about ten more rows (really long rows) I get to the fun part of placing the beads.

Time to get ready!

Love the dagger earrings! I keep my eyes open for those spotted daggers but as yet have not found any....you must have a secret dagger supplier!

Daggers are so beautiful and I love the "feel" of them as well as the color. I love your design.

The first pair of earrings (can't remember their name) aren't they in an issue of B&B or Beadwork? Do you remember which issue? I want to make some!

Thanks!
