Native American Fringe Earrings - Teal & Bronze

  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Light Bronze" (457L)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Metallic Light Bronze" (DB22L)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Matte Galvanized Meade" (DB1163)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Opaque Luster Newsprint" (DB261)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Duracoat Dyed Opaque Eucalyptus" (DB2131)

I previously blogged HERE about the long earring in the center of the photo below. I love the design and colors but I'm not comfortable wearing such long earrings. I'd been wanting to come up with a shorter version that I like as well as the long one and I finally had a chance to do that. Although the design isn't exactly the same, it's close enough to make me happy. I made the top section a little narrower and the fringe a whole lot shorter. 

Because I put so many hours into making the longer earring, I probably won't take it apart. I will keep it and maybe one day I will be brave enough to make the second earring and wear them.

You can buy Delica beads at Red Panda, Aura Crystals, Supply Emporium and Jill Wiseman Designs.
