What was your inspiration?
Aga's first project in the online class... I thought I would use the wire wrapped circle in a different way this time... So I strung seed beads on a separate wire and wrapped them around the circle... I figured that wrapping seeds all around something would need a thicker base...so I used the wire wrapped circle as base...
What are you most proud of?
I had always wanted this kind of earrings...something full of teeeeeeny beads, but not exactly a cluster...and I am so happy I could make one such pair!!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I didn't do this, but you could - count the beads while stringing and wrapping them around the base...that way, you can maintain uniformity between the 2 earrings... Lucky for me, mine look alright even though I forgot to count (in the excitement) :)
