Fringe Earring Samples - Pink, Black & Silver

  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Light Pewter" (4221)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Duracoat Galvanized Matte Light Cranberry" (DB1841F)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Duracoat Galvanized Light Pewter" (DB1851)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Opaque Black" (DB10)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Opaque Limestone Luster" (DB211)

Although this looks like a pair of earrings, they are actually two samples that are slightly different. This design is based on some earrings by Ana Belous that you can see on THIS page of her site. Hers are made with red, blue and yellow beads. I made the earring on the left first but there were some things that I don't like about it. I don't like the black beads that I had added at the top of the fringe on both sides. There is also not enough contrast between the white and silver beads all over the earring.

So, I gave it one more shot and while I do like it better than the first one, I'm not sure yet if I will keep trying, take them both apart or make the mate to it. I did fix the contrast issue by switching some of the colors around but I don't know if I like it well enough that I want a pair of these.



  1. Wow! bellissimi e colori meravigliosi,

  2. Hi, I know this is an older post but wondering if you have instructions for brick stitch. Kinda on a brick stitch craze right now & don't want my threads to show. Thanks. P.S. Love all your patterns

    1. has a good tutorial HERE. As long as you use black thread, it shouldn't show.
