Tara Earrings - Milky Amethyst & Bronze

  • 15/0 seed beads Toho "Transparent Montana Gold Luster" (204)
  • 11/0 seed beads Toho "Transparent Montana Gold Luster" (204)
  • 8/0 seed beads Toho "Transparent Montana Gold Luster" (204)
  • 7mm CzechMates 2-hole cabochons "Bronze"
  • 2-hole Crescent beads "Milky Amethyst Luster Iris"

Here is another pair of "Tara" earrings made with the new 7mm CzechMates cabochons. Once again, I used Toho seed beads and you can see that they worked perfectly with these larger cabs. These bronze cabochons are an usual color that doesn't match any of the Toho or Miyuki metallic bronze seed bead colors. It's actually more gold than bronze and they go quite well with these Montana Gold Luster beads.

You can buy Ellad2's "Tara Earrings" pattern HERE. Red Panda has all of the new 7mm CzechMates Cabochons HERE.



  1. Great! I have some of those Toho Transparent Montana Gold Luster and I love them but I never use them cause they seem to so big. I will have to dig them them out and maybe try them with the 7mm cabs and the Tweaked Jolie.

    1. They are very fat beads, even for Toho, but I had no trouble with them when making these earrings.
