BELLE OF THE BALL EARRINGS
- 15/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Gold" (4202)
- 3mm druks "Fiesta Hollyhock"
- 4mm druks "Opaque Turquoise Luster"
- 6mm druks "Opaque Turquoise Luster"
I showed you a sample of this colorway yesterday, HERE. I hope that I've got something to wear them with because I do like them even though the colors are brighter than I usually wear. I should try to come up with a matching bracelet too, if I can find just the right pattern that calls for druks in two colors.
While making these earrings last night, I thought of something that I should mention about the tutorial. In my post on Thursday, HERE, I mentioned that I needed to add two seed beads in steps 13 and 15 when I used Miyuki beads. Well, the same is true with Toho beads, at least with the colors that I've used. One bead isn't enough to fill the gap properly with either brand. If you're using some really fat Toho beads, one might be enough so just try it both ways and see which works the best.
