I finished some wedding jewelry, a sash to be exact that will adorn a wedding gown, and I had all these nice gold beads.
Here is the stash I pulled for the wedding sash. I used a shibori ribbon, seeds, crystal, pearls and some gold flowers.
The tray that was left when done h the seeds, crystal pearls and flowers and I set out to make some earrings. I really like these. They are going to be for my Going Formal Series that I will do for next years Beading Cruise through the Bahamas.
The bezel is hubble stitch which makes a great flexible bezel. The first earring ended up being a prototype as the flower chain was too tight and didn't come out as I had envisioned. I made a second, shown above which I was really happy with and then had to make the third to go with the second. They are quite fancy pants !
