Make these Daisies, put them on and you're ready to go out and make the people go "WOW" and "Aww... they're so sweeeeet. I badly need one pair just like yours!"
With this lesson you will learn how to model a beautiful pair of Daisy Post Earrings, as well as cute tiny flower posts, as shown in the pictures. The modeling of the tiny flower posts is taught by me within last step of the tutorial, as a BONUS!!! :)
My method of modeling these posts is rather simple, once you get the hang of it. However, it takes time, patience and attention to detail to achieve the neatest, most even aspect of this delicate design. In spite of their delicacy, they should enjoy a long-lasting life under normal wear and tear conditions, provided that you were not in a rush while modeling them.
The design lends itself very well to endless color variations so it is only up to you whether you want to limit yourself to the creation of my daisies and tiny flower posts using only the bead color codes that I have used or, you want to let your creativity take over and play with colors to create lots of beautiful flowers, each with its own charm and loveliness.
In Step 6 - page 20, you will find the bead color codes that I have used for modeling the tiny flower posts, right on their pictures, along with brief, written instructions on how to model them using the same techniques as for the Daisies, slightly modified. They are even easier to model than the daisies are, but first, you need to learn how to model the daisies in order to be able to create the tiny flower posts. The Daisy's bead color codes are disclosed within first page of the tutorial.
The tutorial is filled with information, tips and advices on "how to", all these supported by 58 clear pictures (mainly close-ups) and a Diagram with relevant explanations right beside them, spread along 6 main steps, within 21 pages. The pictures can be magnified at least 300% with clarity.
Important: Please carefully read all tutorial pages before starting to make your own beautiful jewelries!!! The dimensions given in Imperial System are approximate!!!
For further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me through Craftsy. You may rest assured that I will gladly assist you to the best of my abilities.
I hope you will enjoy the lesson! Happy jewelling! :)
