Fringe Earrings #109 - Mulberry & Black

  • 8/0 seed beads Toho "Nickel Plated" (711)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Opaque Black" (DB10)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Nickel Plated" (DB21)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Opaque Mulberry Glazed Luster" (DB265)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Opaque Light Smoke" (DB1498)

Believe it or not, I used the same design as THESE "folk art" earrings to make this pair of subtly colored earrings. I had a very hard time getting the mulberry color to look right in my photos and these are actually very pretty. The color is slightly more purple than mauve and what look like white beads are really a very pale gray.
You can buy Delica beads at Red Panda, Aura Crystals, Supply Emporium and Jill Wiseman Designs.
