|First two weeks of the Earring Challenge|
I found myself working in series as often as not, creating a couple of pairs of earrings from the same basic design. The flames to the lower right were the start of my largest series. I couldn't seem to stop stitching them. I think it had something to do with their warmth and the snow falling outside during that particular point. A friend wondered what they'd look like if I reversed the colors, so I made one of those too, with an orange heart instead of the ultramarine blue.
|I love the warmth of these!|
|Second half of January|
But at the very end, I went created two more pairs of earrings combining peyote stitch and random right angle weave.
|These remind me of green pinecones|
And if you'd like to see more earrings, go check out Backstory Beads, who's also participating in the challenge; her work is gorgeous! And of course, there's the Bead Along gallery at Beading Daily.
