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.

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.
Macrame came next - then embroidery - weaving - and many other crafts.
My love of making jewelry started about 3 years ago. The bead weaving bug bit me - 2 years ago - and I am hooked. I nest among my millions of seed beads and try to create original designs. Since October 2013 I have been attempting to write tutorials for my designs. I hope you like them. ~ Debra of DatzKatz
