Persian Fan Earring Selfie

This is just a short post to show you how the earring looks when I'm wearing it. This should give you a better idea of the size of it than you got just seeing it flat on my beading mat.

You can buy Extrano's "Persian Fans Earrings" pattern in her Etsy shop HERE. And, in case you didn't read my previous post, here are the beads that I used to make this sample earring:

  • 11/0 seed beads Toho "Metallic Bronze Antique Gold" (225)
  • 8/0 seed beads Toho "Metallic Bronze Antique Gold" (225)
  • SuperDuo beads "Crystal Grey Rainbow"
  • 3mm fire polished beads "Matte Iris Brown"


  1. wow that combo makes those earrings look like filigree
    do the flop over or stay put
    those are very very pretty ..Tx

    1. If you use a tight tension, they actually turn out quite stable. After making several samples though, I'm finding that different beads give different results. These matte beads made the most sturdy earring and also the largest. Shiny metallic beads make it come out slightly smaller and more dimensional.
