I showed you a glimpse of today's earrings in yesterday's post HERE. I love how these turned out. I think there are enough colors in them that they're bound to go with something that wear. They're colorful but the colors are a little muted which is just what I like. The Duracoat Galvanized Matte Delica beads come in quite a few pretty colors similar to these. I'm not wild about most of the regular shiny metallic colors but the matte ones are gorgeous.

Although I love this final version of the earring design very much, I'm going to try making the same design with slightly longer fringe and see how well I like it. My plan is to add two more beads to each of the two rows of berry Delicas near the bottom of the fringe.

Delica beads are available at Red Panda, Aura Crystals, Supply Emporium and Baubles & Beads.


  1. Nice colors! i like how rhombus continues to the fringe

  2. Love your colors .. What stitch is the top of the earring?

    1. I use Brick Stitch but you can also use Peyote Stitch and work the pattern vertically from the middle outward.

  3. I like these but miss the vintage bracelet and earring samples.

  4. Hi Linda. I thought you'd like to know, I saw one of your bracelet and earring sets on the favorite trends page of the blog. Here's the link:

    1. What kind of site is that? I'm not familiar with it. I saw several of my items posted there. None of the photos that they've posted appear to link to anything.

  5. Wonderful earrings and so me.
    I love it because it is gorgeous.

    Thank you Gea
