Last night I bought a new earring pattern from Extrano's Etsy shop. HERE is a link to the "Persian Fans Earrings" pattern. I used a scrap of thread that wasn't long enough to reinforce the beadwork at all so it's a little loose in spots. Overall, I'm happy with the results and I especially like the bead colors that I used. I just bought the "Crystal Grey Rainbow" SuperDuo beads the other day on sale and I think they work very well with the other beads. The earrings are a little larger than I usually wear but the design and shape is so pretty that I couldn't resist buying the pattern. Here are the beads that I used:
- 11/0 seed beads Toho "Metallic Bronze Antique Gold" (225)
- SuperDuo beads "Crystal Grey Rainbow"
- 3mm fire polished beads "Matte Iris Brown"
By the way, it looks like I'm finished with my Christmas beading!!! Although I can't post what I've been working on until after Christmas, I should have a bit more time to play with my beads and share my experiments here on my blog.
