Silver Moon Earrings - Pale Mauve & Champagne

  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Metallic Chocolate" (11-461)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Galvanized Mink Bronze" (D4213)
  • 4mm bicones "Champagne Silver AB" (from China)
  • 3mm druks "Opaque Gold and Smoky Topaz Luster"

The seed beads are actually a very light copper color but when combined with the slightly purple druks, the effect is a soft mauve. For more information about this free pattern, click HERE.

UPDATE: Just to prove my point about the earrings looking mauve even though there are no purple beads in them, take a look at the listing for the "Duracoat Galvanized Mink Bronze" seed beads that I used on the Aura Crystals site HERE. They call them "Dark Mauve" but the color number is the same: "4213". To me, they don't look mauve at all by themselves but the druks and crystals somehow give them the look of mauve. Maybe not so much in the photos but definitely in real life.
