I'm beading

Sometimes you just have to bead when the mood strikes, even if it is in the middle of Bead and Button class preparation.  All I want to do is bead.

As I packaged up some hammered gold rings I contemplated what a nice earring they would make, when I got to the filigree I decided I had to bead this pair of earrings right there and then.


A little Gilders paste on the filigree tied the coloring to the beadwork.  I love these Tierra Cast Earwires that give me the opportunity to add a little color at the top of the ear ring as well.

It's nice when a beaded earring works with another piece in your beaded wardrobe with being an exact match.   This pair works particularly well with this Crystal Collage.  All set for summer!


I haven't yet decided if Crystal Collage will be among the retirees....it still is pretty classic for an eight year old design.

Those earrings are just great. And so perfect for your necklace. Here's how you justify it. You needed something to wear teaching your master class!!
