I've been designing beaded jewelry for about 8 years. My initial attempts at designing were to make beautiful jewelry with semi-precious (healing) stones. The beads kind of took over my life and I'm not particular what I use to design with as long as it is a high quality bead.
I can't say I have a favorite stitch or type of bead, but lately I've been experimenting with the new Twin beads and Super Duos.
Next on my to-do list is design some items with Cubic Right Angle Weave with the Twins. It works in my head, now to put thread and beads to it.
These lovely Fleur De Lis earrings are a wonderful accessory for casual or evening wear. If you work them with a combination of size 15 gold seed beads and size 11 green and black delicas, you will get the slightly contoured, textured effect shown in the picture, or you can work them all in delicas for a flat earring.
On the pattern pages, I have provided you with:
Large size colored, numbered graph for earring
Colored graph for the suggested fringe
Suggested colors list
Picture of the finished earrings
Note: No stitch instructions are given. You must be able to increase, decrease and add fringe. As always, if you have questions or need help, my contact information is on the pattern.
Approximate Finished size:
1 in wide X 1.2 inch long without fringe. 2.5 in long with the fringe shown
size 11 delica seed beads, size 15 seed beads (optionl)
