My wonderful Grandmother (miss her every day) gifted me with the love of crafting. She taught me to knit, crochet and sew when I was 5. I remember making barbie doll clothes with her. Learning to knit was tricky since I'm left handed but we didn't give up. I've knit many a sweater since then. She taught me to make 'granny squares' and we joined them together to make a blanket. Embroidery came next - then macrame - weaving - and many other crafts.
My love of making jewelry started in 2011. I started with basic stringing jewelry. In late 2012 I started teaching myself to bead weave - off loom. I love creating original designs. I nest among my millions of seed beads in rural Nova Scotia. Since October 2013 I have been writing tutorials for some of my designs. I hope you like them. ~ Debra of DatzKatz

I was inspired by a picture of Tonatiuh, the sun god in Aztec mythology. You can read more about him here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tonatiuh
These earrings are quick to create. If you have all your supplies ready you can have a pair ready to wear in about 1 hour. Each earrings uses only 12 Superduo beads so they are a great project for that small amount of Superduo beads you have left over from another project.
If you are not a fan of spike beads you can create the Tonatiuh earring with dagger beads or round beads in the center.
Also included in the pattern are instructions to make the earrings with Twin beads.

I created my Tonatiuh earrings to look rustic but you can jazz them up with different bead colors.
I hope you have fun making my earring design.
